Walking trails abound within Block Island. You have to do some research to find out where they are, but serenity and the undisturbed sounds of nature await you.

One thing that we noticed was the prevalence of stone walls. My husband became curious and got a book about stone walls in New England. Apparently most of the stone walls on Block Island were built by slaves in order to earn their freedom!

There's an overabundance of deer on Block Island, so you need to be sure to take precautions against deer ticks when venturing into the woods.

My wife and I hiked along the greenway trails to Black Rock Beach. We got a taxi from the center of town to the intersection of Champlin Rd and West Side Rd and began our hike- cost about $11. Most of the hike is on pretty well-maintained grass trails, although there are spots with uneven rocks and a couple of rolling hills. Along the way, we passed the Island Cemetary, several deer, and a couple of farms. It was a great experience hiking for hours without seeing another person. Some parts of the trail seemed to go through people's backyards. The only drawback was that parts of the trail we not very well-marked and we went around in circles part of the time. We eventually found our way to Rodman's Hollow and to Black Rock Beach- which is a great secluded beach. After sunning ourselves for a couple of hours, we walked about 15 minutes to Lakeside Dr and Mohegan Trail and called a taxi to pick us up. 20 minutes and $14 later, we were back in town ready to get some well-deserved lunch. All in all, pack a good map and you will have a great day of hiking along a secluded trail with the promise of a beautiful beach at the end- plan on 2-3 hours of hiking.

BI is covered with "greenway" trails. There is no map, but you will see stone markers or wooden signs that say greenway. They crisscross the island bringing you to hidden gems...open fields, streams, stonewalls, sweeping views. One popular one is located across from the airport. Make sure you read about the glass globe hunt going on now on www.blockislandinfo.com. We never miss a chance to walk these well maintained trails!

We loved the paths and trails that just let you wonder on and on to take in the smells of rose hips and the sounds of the birds and rustling of grass.

You must walk these trails to appreciate the real beauty of the Block! Treasure hunt for the orbs (Glass Float Project)...they are hard to find! Terrific views and long trails. Watch for ticks!!

We were only able to travel a few miles along this trail, but it brought us to meadow and farms along a meandering route through woods, hills, and dales, and was a fun side trip from the main road. Highly recommend it.

Crescent Beach is a hidden gem on Block Island. It is located north of the Town Beach (which has a pavillion with facilities), and Scotch Beach (a popular beach for boaters in the New Harbor). Crescent Beach is East facing so you are looking at open ocean for miles. Access is limited so you either park at Scotch Beach and walk north, or Mansion Beach and walk south.
