Warren Bike Path
The Warren Bike Path is one of the newest bikeways in Rhode Island. Opened in June 2010, the 1-mile path in the eastern portion of town extends from the Kickemuit River to Long Lane, close to the Massachusetts border.
The path follows the abandoned Warren-Fall River Railroad spur, along which the Town of Warren has long-range plans to extend the path further east toward the East Bay Bike Path.
The new path provides a major recreation asset to the town, as well as an alternative transportation corridor for non-motorized travel. It provides direct connections to Kickemuit Middle School, Hugh Cole Elementary School and Warren Recreation Park.
The path is mostly level. On-road options exist for getting to the nearby East Bay Bike Path.
