If you look at my track, you will see why I call this trail Green Falls Pond Plus. My Grandson and I turned this 1.7 mile loop into a 9.2 mile hike that took into Rhode Island. The loop around Green Falls Pond is very easy and family friendly. At the south end of the pond is a small waterfall and the runoff from Green Falls Pond. This blue Narragansett Trail is the highlight of the trip around the pond. It takes you about a half mile down to Green Falls Road and then you can backtrack back to the pond and finish circling it. This little stretch is moderate with lots of rocks and ledges to get over and around. It is a beautiful little stretch that is a must see. On the Northeast side of the pond, we headed out on the Blue Narragansett Trail that took us down to Hidden Lake. We took an assortment of different trails that brought us to Yawgoog Pond, a Boy Scout Camp Area. From there we doubled back taking the blue/yellow trail that goes along the border of CT & RI. There were various large rock formations (Dinasaur Caves/Cliffs) that we had to climb over. All the trails we covered today were pretty easy with a touch of (moderate) here and there. National Geographic has a pretty good map of the area trails. It can be found at www.mdc.net/~dbrier/yawgoog/trails. One note of concern was the damage being done by the Gypsy Moth Caterpillars. The trails are littered with pieces of green leaves. If you stop while hiking, you can hear them munching the foliage. Hopefully they won't strip the trees like they did in the late 1970's. It was a fun day capped off with a swim at Green Falls Pond beach area where we started and ended the hike.
