You get a great view of the bluffs if you follow the road to the end at the trailhead. We only went down into the hollow for a little bit. We were more interested in ocean views than the hollow. It was a pleasant walk.

This is our favorite hike. After a long bike ride around the Island we found this hike, It is not easy to find but worth looking for. the Hollow is beautiful and the colors are vibrant at different times of the year. You can't miss this on your trip tp Block Island.

There is a small parking lot where we started, and from there a clearly marked trail with several side trails. It is light hiking since it's most flat. If you walk far enough you will hit the bluffs and can see the beaches .

For our day trip to Block Island, while riding our scooter, we took a turn at hiking. Rodman Hollow allowed us to leave our wheels, and hike east toward the shores. A warm day, with brush and a good trail to follow, led us to the Southeast corner of the island, where we looked over bluffs toward the south. Great... More

Pretty spot of the island with a sweeping view to the ocean. Go in the mid-to-late morning when the sunlight brings out its best.

Our long hike alongside flowering meadows was a trip through the Garden of Eden. I even found a 4-leaf-clover! The views of the ocean, the bluffs and the cliffs were spectacular. We took many pictures. We were happy here!

We spent a few hours roaming around Block Island on the Rodman's Hollow trail and enjoyed it very much. There is so much to see from the interesting flora including trees, shrubs, wildflowers and berries, to the panoramic vistas of the ocean and seaside cliffs. Be sure to bring plenty of water to drink and protection from poison ivy, but... More

Loved our looong walk through the trails of Rodman's Hollow. It was absolutely beautiful and secluded and peaceful. Be careful though - got my first tick bite here and ended up with Lyme Disease. It's terribly prevalent on the Island (which I still love), apparently. Use extra precautions and do tick checks!
