Directions:     

From I-195 in Massachusetts take Exit 5 to Route 136 south. In approximately 3 miles, stay left at Market St to remain on Route 136 then turn right to follow Route 136 on a one-way road to Child St. At the intersection with Child St, turn left to follow Route 103 East. Turn right at Cole School Rd (first right after Kickemuit Middle School) and follow until it merges with Asylum Rd. The entrance to Warren Recreation Park is on the left before Hugh Cole School.

The Warren Bike Path follows the abandoned Warren-Fall River Railroad Spur East-West in Warren. Future construction will extend it West to the East Bay Bike Path . For more information visit; BIKE RI .

Starting from Warren Recreation Park [Center Section]; Restrooms, fields and a playground are located here.

Heading East; The paved Warren Bike Path travels into the woods. The trail ends after only 0.5 miles at Long Lane. The old rail bed continues East, undeveloped, into MA.

Heading West; The paved Warren Bike Path crosses Asylum Rd and follows a berm between the playing fields of Kickemuit Middle School along your right and woods along your left. A causeway takes you between the Kickemuit River (Warren Reservoir) but the trail ends after 0.4 miles because the old RR bridge is long gone. A new bridge is currently under construction in 2023. The trail will then continue out to Metacom Ave. From there, the old railway easement runs all the way from the North Side of Franklin St, terminating at the East Bay Bike Path near Railroad Ave.

On-road detour from Warren Recreation Park to the East Bay Bike Path; Travel North from Warren Recreation Park along Asylum Rd, bearing left along Cole School Rd, out to Child St (Route 103). Turn left and follow Child St West through town to where the East Bay Bike Path crosses after 1.5 miles.
