The Ten Mile River Greenway was built in 2004 to connect Slater Park in Pawtucket to the Kimberly Ann Rock Athletic Fields in East Providence at a distance of 2.5 miles. It is one of the few bike paths in Rhode Island that was not built along a former rail corridor. This means the path follows the natural contour of the land and provides a very scenic ride or walk along rolling terrain on the banks of the James Turner Reservoir.
We will meet @ Kimberly Rock field parking lot. The meet up is located behind the Wolf school @ 215 Ferris Ave. East Providence. This is a very scenic area, woods and waterviews abound.
I stopped by the path today. It is still snow covered (from where I was) and was icy in areas. I would strongly suggest bringing spikes or traction devices. The snow was not too deep. This will be an out and back hike all on the Greenway. Once we arrive @ Slater park if you want we can walk through the park to add to our total distance. As always bring plenty of water and snacks. Make sure you dress in layers. You really do get quite warm hiking in the cold weather. Sorry for the last minute, I thought I had to work in the AM. Hope to see you in the morning.
