My husband and I loved our hike here. So peaceful and filled with natural beauty. Not a very difficult hike, and I think it would be hard to get lost even though the trails aren't marked because you can hear the crashing of the waves...More

You get a great view of the bluffs if you follow the road to the end at the trailhead. We only went down into the hollow for a little bit. We were more interested in ocean views than the hollow. It was a pleasant walk.

did you mean on Block Island itself? There are several lovely blocks of shops and hotels in the downtown area where the ferry docks, but no amusement park or boardwalk per se......and nothing like that near Rodman's Hollow... More
