Quonset Bike Path
The Quonset Bike Path River Bikeway in North Kingstown was built by RIDOT and the Quonset Development Corporation and provides a unique recreational asset to the state's largest industrial park. The path opened in 2009 and runs 2.5 miles from Route 1 (Post Road) to the Calf Pasture Point nature area
in the Quonset Business Park in North Kingstown.
The bikeway follows the perimeter of the industrial park, with access points to abutting neighborhoods. This allows both park users and employees access to the park, as well as the surrounding community. The path is entirely off-road, and connects to a network of old access roads built by the Navy, but is now part of the Calf Pasture Point nature area managed by the Town of North Kingstown. Cyclists can venture past the finished bikeway along the old roadway network to lengthen their ride.
