Goddard Memorial State Park – Varied distances available, with a choice of walking the park’s paved roads, along the shore of Greenwich Cove from the boat ramp to the beach, and on the dirt horseback riding trails through pine and deciduous woodlands (remember – horses have right of way on these trails!) From a short walk on the boardwalk at the beach, you can easily make routes in excess of 5 miles.

The Warwick section, running along and across the Pawtuxet River, is approx. 1 mi., but opens up the route in either direction.
