The East Bay Bike Path is a trail that has been open for use for 14 years. It is well maintained and well used.

The following sections of Rail-trail will be part of an alternate route of the East Coast Greenway, a multi-use trail that is planned from Maine to Florida:
Warren Bike Path - (MA State Line to Warren (ECG Section RI-8) - planned
East Bay Bike Path - Warren to East Providence (ECG Section RI-9) - currently open
The East Coast Greenway has recently been selected as one of 15 trails for designation as a Millenium Trail, which should be very helpful in focusing public attention on all of the component trail projects.
Current information is posted to the Bike RI Construction Update Web Page at the RI-DOT Web Site!
The East Bay Bike Path ends at India Point Park where it connects directly to the temporary On-Road Bike Route for the Blackstone River Bikeway.
There is no temporary On-Road Bike Route to the beginning of the Cranston Greenway (part of the Washington Secondary Bicycle Path). However, the following Rhode Island Public Transit Authority Bus routes can be used to leapfrog the gap that begins at from the East Street Pedestrian overpass of I-195 to India Point Park:
A 14.5 mile section of the Trail from East Providence (Riverside) to Bristol (Independence Park) is described in section 23 of the Official Rails-to-Trails Conservancy New England Guidebook by Cynthia Mascott published in 2000 by Globe Pequot Press. This trail listing contains a photograph, historical description, trail head directions and parking, a trail map, trail details, a local trail manager contact, and much more.
The East Bay Bike Path is described in Great Rail Trails of the Northeast by Craig Della Penna. The information includes a historical background of the trail as well as a detailed description keyed to bicycle odometer readings from the author's in person trip down the trail. This book is out-of-print, but many bookstores still have copies for sale.
See the corresponding section for the Washington Secondary Bicycle Path.
