Go for a Walk!

Welcome to ExploreRI’s guide to 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 and get trail maps for your walk, whether you are looking for someplace nearby for a short walk or someplace where you can hike all day! We are adding more trails as maps are prepared and hope to add RI DEM (state park and management area) trails to ExploreRI in the future.

The icons on the map mark trailheads, meaning places to access a trail system. Note that some trail systems may be accessed via more than one trailhead. To get trail maps and other information about individual trails and trailheads click on an icon on the map. This will open a pop-up balloon with a link to click for more details, including trail maps and information about alternate trailheads.

To zoom in and out use the zoom control in the left corner of the map. To pan the map (move to a different place) use the arrow keys in the top left corner of the map or simply click and drag the map. To switch to street view to get more street details, click on the "map" button in the upper right corner of the map. Switching to street or satellite view will also allow you to zoom in more than you can in terrain view.


The data on this website comes from many sources, including volunteers and organizations across the state of Rhode Island and nearby parts of Massachusetts. We have done our best to make sure the data are accurate and up to date, but any information critical to the success of your trip should be confirmed before you start. The maps and information on this website should not be substituted for nautical charts, topographic maps, or other more detailed maps and guides. We welcome corrections and additions.

Credits: The trailhead data came from numerous sources and organizations including the Rhode Island Geographic Information System (RIGIS). Much of the data was collected through the hard work of volunteers for various conservation, watershed and outdoor recreation groups around the state of Rhode Island.
