Washington Secondary Bike PathWashington Secondary Bike Path
Cranston , Rhode IslandMap This LocationPhone:
The Washington Secondary Bike Path is the state's second-longest bike path at 14.2 miles from Cranston Street in Cranston to Central Coventry. It is named for the abandoned rail corridor once served by the Providence, Hartford, & Fishkill Railroad.
The path is often referred to locally by the segment names given as the path was built, and these include, from west to east:
Trestle Trail (under design)
West Warwick Greenway
Warwick Bike Path
Cranston Bike Path
The path is poised to be the longest in Rhode Island and RIDOT is working on the design for two contracts to extend the paved bikeway west along the Trestle Trail. When finished, the bikeway will be 25 miles long from the Connecticut state line to close to Providence. Another contract set to go to construction in 2012 will rehabilitate the original Coventry Greenway section, build a parallel equestrian trail, and add other amenities along the path.
