Trail Systems:

Welcome to ExploreRI’s new system for finding walking trails in Rhode Island. Land Trusts and other organizations maintain walking and hiking trails all across Rhode Island. This website will help you find those trails, whether you are looking for someplace nearby for a short walk or someplace where you can hike all day! We will be adding more trails this spring and summer and hope to add RI DEM (state park and management area) trails to ExploreRI in the future.

Click on any trail system name below for more information and trail maps.

To change how the list is sorted, click on the column headings. For example, to sort the list by town click on the 'town' heading. Click again on the same column heading to reverse the order.
