George B. Parker Woodland Trail is a 6.1 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near Greene, RI that features beautiful wild flowers and is rated as moderate. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible year-round.
Well-marked trails, options for longer or shorter hikes. Easy to find parking lot from the road and from the trail. Very rocky, need sturdy footwear. River was beautiful!
Great hike with a beautiful babbling brook! Trail is very well marked and safe.
Great trail! Nicely kept, well marked, and a little bit of bit of history!
Beautiful place to go, had a great time but if it rains be careful not to slip on the wood walkways!
really enjoyed the hike. enough ups and downs to make for a good workout. scenic enough, with a brook, rock formations and revolutionary-era remains. saw some wildlife too. did both Coventry and Foster loops. trail is VERY well marked, maps are available at the head, and there are several opportunities to cut the hike short if needed.
Hiked the blue coventry loop.. All was good.. Good mix of uphill and downhill parts of the trail.. Along with a couple of historical briefings and a river running along certain parts. Nice workout ! Will be back to do the big loop into foster next time!
We hiked the Coventry loop. It was a good balance...not too difficult but not too easy either.
Did the western half of the trails. Was especially excited to walk the pre-Revolutionary War road, Biscuit Hill, although it has not been kept up.
Loved walking along the brooks. There were a few moderate inclines so we agree with the moderate rating. We went off trail coming back to walk along the brook's edge. Loved the terrain... Overall would rank this as one of our favorites, mainly for the brooks
Great hike! A lot of hills and rocks. Very fun to climb. We were a little confused by the table top rock, couldn't really figure it out or find it. It was our first time there though.
Very pleasing hike fantastic place from a nature stand point. The brook and the rocks were a great place to stop and have lunch.
The foundation of the farmhouse and old farm sight were awesome. Great to stand in a piece of history.
All around great hike but the features were a little underwhelming.
Quiet and beautiful with a dose of history

We did the first blue loop (Coventry) from the orange trail out of the first parking lot. It was great! Starting out near the cairns it's a bit rocky and has lots of roots, so we watched our footing and went carefully. Lots of up and down in different areas; it was very dry due to the lack of rain so it wasn't slippery but it could be. The blue markers weren't always easy to see, but the trail is pretty easy to follow. Fascinating old homestead foundation, and very nice trail after that, flatter and covered with pine needles. We loved it, will go back to do the other loop another time!
Great first trail with my 10 year old daughter! Completed the orange and blue loop in about 1 hour 45 minutes. Nice way to start the day!!! She is ready for our next trail and to come back for a longer hike!!!
I did parts of this trail this afternoon (5/31/15). I parked in the main lot (1670 Maple Valley Rd Coventry) where there is a nice kiosk with maps available. Unfortunately rain was coming in and I didn't have a lot of time and I couldn't complete both loops. What I did do ended up being 6 miles but I ended up doing quite a bit up and back rather than full loops. From the main parking lot I followed the orange blaze to the blue blaze and turned right. This is a nice section of trail that goes through the woods and along a nice stream. I then took the yellow trail which was an awesome section of trail, and to make a shorter loop I went up (left) on Parker T Rd (a nice wood road) and then after a ways up the trail I turned left back onto the blue trail. I then followed this back to close this mini loop and when went back the way I came in. Toward the end I ended up going to the secondary parking lot and followed the paved Maple Valley Rd back to the main lot to save time and get out of the rain! Trail are easy to follow and well blazed -overall a very nice set of trails and I will be back for sure.
