Length: Warren Bike Path; 0.9 miles.
On-road detour to the East Bay Bike Trail; 1.5 miles.
Difficulty: Easy. Flat paved rail trail.
From I-195 in Massachusetts take Exit 2 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, along which the town has long-range plans to extend the path further east toward the East Bay Bike Path . For more information visit; BIKE RI .
Starting from Warren Recreation Park; Restrooms, fields and a playground are located here.
Heading east; Follow the paved trail right into the woods. The trail ends after only 0.5 miles at Long Lane.
Heading west; Cross Asylum Rd and follow 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. Future plans call for replacing the bridge and continuing the trail through Warren and connecting into the East Bay Bike Path.
On-road detour from Warren Recreation Park to the East Bay Bike Path; To reach the East Bay Bike Path head north (right) from the park along Asylum Rd, bearing left along Cole School Rd, out to Child St (Route 103). Turn left and follow Child St through town to where the East Bay Bike Path crosses after 1.5 miles.
