Whether you are out for a serious workout, just out for a cruise, honing your technical skills or keeping the kids entertained, you will agree the best way to see the Lincoln Woods State park trails is by mountain bike. The paved 2.5-mile loop that circumnavigates Olney Pond and the tight singletrack and gravel double-track that weave through the woods and boulder fields north of the pond will keep you happily pedaling for hours. You will encounter boulders, rolling hills, steep ascents and descents, loose terrain, logs and other obstructions on the trails. The easier trails can be found close to the lake.
The horse trails to the west of Quinsnicket Road are designated exclusively for equestrian use. The trails to the east of Quinsnicket Road as identified on the map above are multi-use and may be utilized for mountain biking activities.
It's almost impossible to get lost, unless you are as directionally challenged as me. The best time to ride here (unless you are doing the Bikeway) is the fall. The black files are out in force from May through most of June and in summer it gets crowded and muggy.
From Providence take Interstate Rte. 95 North, to Rte. 146 North, to Lincoln Woods State Park exit, follow signs.
