Climbing and Riding in New England and Beyond

Tower Hill Loop

Ride leaves from: LaSalle Bakery

There are lots of nice ways to get up to Tower Hill, which is probably the focal point of this ride—I couldn't think of a better thing to name it, in any case. This route includes some of the nicest roads and hardest hills Rhode Island has to offer. Scott Road, Log Road, and the roads around the Diamond Hill Reservoir are especially nice. Tower Hill is probably the longest hill in RI, but it's more a series of intervals than a steady climb. Super fun, though. Burlingame and Whipple are also formidable.
