There are a bunch of Greenway Trails on the Block. This one is lovely and you can go to the beach or take the longer trail to the north part of the island.

We managed to hike this well maintained trail during our stay. It was a humid day with stuffy air quality, but the views and the sounds of nature were well worth our time to hike across the top of the clay bluffs.

My favorite trail on the island. You can see the ocean through almost the entire trail, and what gorgeous views they are. It is also fun to pop down to the beach at the entrance. My dog loves this one also!

Amazing trail, peaceful, secluded, shady. The hike is easy, through a wonderful rolling landscape, typical of Block Island. The beach at the end is gorgeous, uncrowded, and perfect for a swim. A place to visit if you enjoy getting off the beaten path.

The clay head nature trail is a good spot for hiking on Block Island. It’s natural and tough but not too difficult to hike.

The bluffs along this trail are not quite as dramatic as Mohegan Bluffs, but still scenic and worth a visit nevertheless. There is a small parking lot near the end of a bumpy dirt road. We walked all the way to the North Lighthouse along...More

It look too wild for swimming, but it's a nice walk in from Corn Neck Road, though the sign to the trailhead is hard to spot coming from the lighthouse. Wear sneakers- the trail can be wet

Nice hike with lots of great views at the tops of the bluffs. A short walk takes you initially to the beach and then you can continue on for a mile or so. Scenic lookouts, good bird watching.

Yep, off of Corn Neck Road, there is a sign for Clayhead and parking at the end of a rather long and bumpy dirt path.

The trail is fairly level w/ a one gradual relatively short down hill section if you take the right junction trail to the beach. Otherwise to the left at the junction you are walking slightly up and down on a high ridge... More
