We went for a walk with our two dogs and did about two miles. Liked the trail. Planning to go again.

We had a nice afternoon as a family enjoying the beautiful scenic trail. I love that the path is paved so my child had a smooth ride in her trailer. There was lots of wildlife including rabbits, a fox, and a snapping turtle. It's clean too. We will be back!

The map for this location brings you to the Washington Secondary Bike Path in West Warwick. I’m confused by the name and description of this trail. The Carbuncle Pond Management Area in Greene has a Trestle Trail but that is 16 miles north-west of this unrelated bike path.

I enjoyed the Carbunkle Pond Trestle Trail for mountain biking including great addition of a marked blue trail. Also good for hiking. Definitely a mogul work out. Watch for snakes and horse dung.

Very picturesque and peaceful for walking.

My grandson and I hiked this trail from the end of the bike path in Coventy, RI to Rt 14A in Sterling, CT. The beginning of the trail was fine, level, nicely shaded, with a passable bridge over the first water crossing. It was a pleasant hike right to Pete's Pizza for lunch. Unfortunately, from that point on the trail is a disaster. The deep-sand surface is one long series of moguls created by ATV's, and makes walking difficult. Two water crossings have no bridges, and while the first is only a brook and not that big an issue, the second is a narrow yet rapid tributary about 20ft wide with a depth of 2-2 1/2 ft. In the spring, many areas that are not sandy moguls are mudpits, the worst being right before the intersection of Rt 102. Here, this old railroad bed is an impassable swamp with steep cliff sides. The only way out is to turn around and backtrack a couple of miles or to climb onto private property to escape a dangerous sucking mud. Past Rt 102 the trail is not terrible, often being surfaced with shale and cinder from the old railbed. The trestle bridge is fine except for the large holes in the flooring....be careful. Then the trail continues it's previous sandy, mogul surface all the way through to CT. With a little maintenance and a couple of bridges, along with some monitoring to curtail the ATV's, this could be a really nice hiking and biking trail. For now though, I wouldn't recommend it for anything.
