You’d think that an island just a few dozen miles from New York and Boston would be covered with mega-mansions. But forward-thinking Block Island residents began putting aside land for preservation 40 years ago with the result that now nearly half of the island is an unspoiled patchwork of meadow, forest, and shoreline. A network of more than 25 miles of trails crisscrosses the island known as the “Greenway Trails” showcases the island’s impressive diversity, from the majestic ocean scenery of Clay Head to the quiet rolling grassland of Rodman’s Hollow. For a map of the trails, stop by the office of the Nature Conservancy on High Street in Old Harbor.

If you want to do some Hiking on block Island, there are a few good spots. The greenway walking trails is one of the best.
So quiet we felt like it was our own.
Ran into very few people here great place to hike/walk around for a few hours. Beautiful views and I even found one of the glass floats hidden around the island on our walk!
