Awesome set of trails on this path! I ventured off the marked trails and there are numerous branching paths to choose from. Used the maps on the app to make sure I didn’t get turned around too much.

Overall, a great trail. I picked this as my goal for to finish in one hike by the end of 2019. Unfortunately, at this point it has to be done in two separate trips, because erosion along the river caused one of the footbridges constructed in 2018 to collapse (see pix).

For bikers, this trail has some really fun parts. AT first i started at the church st lot and took an early right detour onto some thin singletrack. the trails over there are not well marked, and many trees down in the trail that you cant rider over. you eventually get dumped into a construction site. I got frustrated and worked back towards the main trail. (blazed with blue markings). This trail starts out like a double-track jeep trail but narrows out and follows the canal. southbound for some really nice straight sections, some smooth, some rooty and some ups and downs. a few ridable water crossings too. The goat hill section of the trail is brutal on the climb but doable. I was able to stay on the bike on most but not all of the ascent. A few sections required a walk. there are a bunch of loops that go around the top of the hill which are fun. The way down was an absolute blast! so worth the climb. I recommend following the canal south, THEN going north up and down the goat hill part. the climb the other way would have been impossible to ride. Steep, rocky and windy. made for an awesome descent though. You aren't going to want to ride that descent on a hardtail.

When you get to the parking lot follow the large trail that kind of look like a road. If you take the trail to the right it'll bring you to an area under construction which gets a little confusing to navigate.

A solid 4 hour hike. I did the windy route out and the long straightaway back. Very poor signage, so be sure to have your phone battery charged and your AllTrails map open. The straightaway wasn't crowded at all, but the ten or so people I saw were all on that section. The windy trail was silent and empty. Nothing but nature sounds, and it was grand. I strongly recommend it for people who are trying to recharge in solitude or who seek privacy with their significant others. I barely needed water given the meager altitude. The windy trails are a mountain biker's dream, but they're fun to hike as well. A solid 4 stars for the serenity and the unique views of the old canals and locks that connected Providence to Worcester.
