Office at 352 High Street Block Island, RI Phone: 401-466-2129

Formed by glaciers nearly 10,000 years ago, Block Island features a diverse array of habitats. Birds stop here while migrating in the spring and fall along the Atlantic Flyway. About 25 miles of walking and hiking trails on Block Island are open to the public, free of charge. A full-color map showing all 25 miles of walking trails is available at the Nature conservancy office on High Street and at the Tourist Information Building in Old Harbor. Price $2
Please do not bike on the trails. The island’s many dirt roads offer excellent off-road biking opportunities. Lyme disease is common on Block Island. Take precautions to avoid deer ticks. Staying on marked trails will help you avoid ticks and poison ivy. Dogs are permitted, but please keep them leashed. Please remember that the dunes and bluffs are very fragile. Please stay clear of them for your safety.
