Block Island packs many opportunities for hiking into its small space; but the favorite preserve for many visitors and natives alike is the sunken meadow of Rodman’s Hollow, a crazy-quilt of fields, forests and wetlands abutting the cliffs on the southwest corner of the island. The tract was the first area on Block Island preserved by the Block Island Conservancy back in the 1970s, sparking the conservation movement that followed on the island as a whole. It’s now crisscrossed by miles of trails, many of which are relatively gentle and perfectly suitable for family hiking of all ages.
