Michael D. on Long Pond Woods Trail
best trail in RI
Hiked from Canochet Rd lot down to Ashville Pond to Stubtown Rd lot. Then opted to return walking the back roads for a little more aerobic walk. There is a spot on the trail down where you have to do an immediate u turn on a ledge that is not clearly marked! But having AllTrails shows you exactly where you are so you can't get lost.
Not sure if we parked in the wrong location, trail was nice, lots of rocky inclines but lost the yellow trail abruptly. Just suddenly ended. Tried to find another trail, drove to another spot that looked like it would take us to another pond but nothing was marked.
I loved this hike. Has some challenging and rocky sections. Overall, it was a very enjoyable hike. Incorporated Yawgoog pond, Ell pond, and Long pond into this hike and turned it into a 8.5 mile hike.
Definitely one of the better hikes in Rhode Island. I will definitely return.
This is an okay hike. It's mostly flat but there are some very steep and rocky sections. There isn't much to see in the way of lookouts, but the trail itself has much to offer. There are rhododendrons all over and there are boulders on which to walk on. It gives it a different feel to most trails in this area. It's an alright hike to stretch one's legs, but not much for views and thrills.
