    Good trails in RI for a 'cross bike?

    So I've been living in RI (Newport) for quite a while now, but haven't really done any riding out here. I usually do all my riding in MA since there are some great trails pretty close by.

    I just got a cyclocross bike a few weeks ago, and I've been loving it on the road, but am looking for some trails to take it on. Nothing too rocky or technical like the stuff I ride in MA.

    Does anyone know of any relatively smooth trails in RI that would be good for a 'cross bike?

    Thanks!

    A lot of trails in Big River Management Area in West Greenwich are a blast on a CX bike. Lot's of flowy, buff single track, doubletrack and fireroads that are CX-able. Connect Big River with the fire roads in Arcadia and Pachaug (CT) and you can have yourself a 100+ mile all day adventure on 80% dirt. Awesome maps of all 3 areas can be found here... Great Swamp Press¬*|¬*Archive¬*|¬*Hiking Guide . The Arcadia and Pachaug maps are spot on. The Big River map is missing some of the singletrack but the primary trails are all there.

    Thanks, that sounds perfect! I've been wanting to check those areas out on my mtb for a while, but haven't gotten out there yet. The maps will be a big help, as I'll probably end up going out alone.

    Do you ride there often?
