Beware- there are many hills and the paths aren't well marked. It was pretty nonetheless. A well mowed path leads up and down the hills into the hollow.

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.

There is a small parking lot where we started, and from there a clearly marked trail with several side trails. It is light hiking since it's most flat. If you walk far enough you will hit the bluffs and can see the beaches .

Pretty spot of the island with a sweeping view to the ocean. Go in the mid-to-late morning when the sunlight brings out its best.

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
