Lincoln Woods State Park

Nestled between routes 146 and routes 123 , Lincoln Woods State Park is one of Blackstone Valley's great treasures. A short ride from Providence, Pawtucket, and Cumberland, it is a popular get away for northeastern Rhode Islanders. Visitors can enjoy swimming at the fresh water beach, trout fishing, playing ball, hiking, jogging, horseback riding, or just relaxing under a shade tree. A new covered bridge at the Breakneck Hill entrance has been dedicated in the spring of 2005. Lincoln Woods State Park is one of three Rhode Island State Park locations tested for safe ice during the winter months.

In light of the increased amount of use the horse trails in Lincoln Woods State Park by equestrian and mountain bicycle users and in the interest of public safety, the desire to minimize conflicts, and the desire to protect the integrity and character of the trails for the equestrian use, the division has adopted the following policy for the use of the trails at Lincoln Woods State Park.

Those trails the the east of Quinsnicket Road as identified on the map linked below as being Zoned "B" shall be multi-use and may be utilized for mountain biking activities.
