Second only to East Bay Bike path in Rhode Island, this has great views and a neat free three room museum in Quinnville devoted to transportation. I just wish the state would repair the tree root upheavals that have been in place for a decade.

My biking buddy and I ride this path several times per year, in all the seasons. Only a few crossroads, and if you do the entire path, including a small section on back streets at one end, you can ride a little over 20 miles....More

Very nice place to get some excise and enjoy the view. Watch out for people on bikes. If you stay to the side and follow the rules on the signs, you said be just fine.

Good spot to get away from the heavy street traffic and run along with the Blackstone river. Some repairs are needed but for the majority it is not too bad.

lovely paved pathway for biking, running or walking. It is a well maintained area that runs along the Blackstone River. There are some small inclines along the way but nothing steep. There are many areas where you are able to gain access to the path....More

Follows the Blackstone River almost the entire way with beautiful views. Mostly flat. Paved but some parts of the path were pretty bumpy from tree roots. These were mostly highlighted with paint as a warning. Easy free parking in Woonsocket.
