A favorite of first timers and experienced triathletes, Colt
State Park is beautiful.. you will bike and run in the park alone.. no
cars! fun along the ocean side! and soak up the ocean air.
Colt State Park is often referred to as the 'Gem' of the State Parks System.
The entire western border of the park is an open panorama onto Narragansett Bay. Open year round,
the park offers four miles of bicycle trails passing along the Bay and through 464 acres of groomed fruit trees,
carefully nurtured flowering bushes, and manicured lawns. Rich in history, it proudly displays ten large playfields,
a historical museum, six picnic groves containing 400+ picnic tables, and its popular open air Chapel-By-The-Sea and you will see it all as you bike the park 3 times!
