The Blackstone River Bikeway, which will ultimately extend 48 miles into Massachusetts, offers scenic bike views that follow the Blackstone River, the birthplace of the American Industrial Revolution. The river was critically important in the industrial development of the country and home to some of the nation’s first water-powered mills. Today, it's tree lined, teeming with fish (and as a result, hawks), turtles, frogs, and other wildlife. The bikeway runs within the Blackstone River Valley National Historical Park.
