Very interesting if you like unusual locations. The bottom of the hollow is actually below the sea level with the sea being only a few hundred yards away. Watch out for the ticks and poison ivy and don't venture in on a hot day - the negative elevation results in an almost total lack of any breeze and the trees... More

Great view from the road and the walk is comfortable and manageable. So wonderful to be enveloped in greenery and feel totally safe at the same time.

Of all the walking trails on Block Island, this is one of our favorites, as it meanders through so many terrains: wooded, open, flat, steep, and with great views of the island and the sea. Black Rock Beach is beautiful.

Rodman's Hollow is part of the chain of Greenway Trails that cris-cross the island. These trails start at the road, where there is a small parking area, and snake all of the way down to the bluffs on the South side of the island. Everything about this hike is just beautiful! If you want a longer hike, you can connect... More

We did the trails through Rodman's a few years ago on horseback and decided to try it on foot this time. The hike was very pleasant on a perfect day. Not much else to say other than it was nice.

First time to the Hollow, we had an awesome time spotting deer and the most monarch's we've seen all year! We did two hikes and still never made it to the bottom of the Hollow, we have to return!! Hiked to the bluffs and then down to the secluded Black Rock Beach. We also hiked a trail or maybe a... More

The trail through and around the hollow offers many fine views and a pleasant peaceful setting. The climb down to Black Rock beach is a bit of a scramble, but well worth it.

The Hollow has some amazing walking and running trails. Decent amount of birds and some deer to be seen (depending on the time of day). The highlight of Rodman's Hollow (for me) is when the trail terminates into Black Rock Beach. This is honestly the most desolate beach on the island. You will be lucky if three or four people...

My sister and I wanted to take a nice, long hike so we chose Rodman's Hollow. There are multiple trails connected together so you can choose a short or long hike. We hiked approximately 8 miles including all of the Rodman's Hollow trails and the trail connecting to Fresh Pond. The beach at the bluffs (Black Rock area) is stunning... More
