Steve Jermanok’s Active Travels: Little Compton, Rhode Island


South of Route 195 and the gritty mill towns of
Fall River and New Bedford lies countryside so fertile you’ll feel like
you’re in Vermont. Stretching from Dartmouth, Massachusetts, to Little
Compton, Rhode Island, the area is known as the Heritage Farm Coast. It
has the sunniest and most temperate climate in New England and thus the
longest growing season. Dairy farms, corn fields, even vineyards,
border the Sakonnet River as it washes into the Atlantic. Add the
crescent of sand at Briggs Beach and you have the perfect country and
coast ride. For a good 20-mile loop, take Route 77 south from Tiverton
Four Corners to Sakonnet Point and return on backcountry roads past the
village green of Little Compton. Visit Active Travels.
