Long Pond Woods Trail is a 4.4 mile lightly trafficked out and back trail located near Hope Valley, RI that features a lake and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, nature trips, and birding and is accessible from March until November.
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.
Going on a hike this weekend! can't wait! thank you all for the cool reviews :)
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.
Love this trail in RI. It's got some incline so it's a workout for beginners or young kids. Their are some wonderful rocks and flora along the way. Great way to spend 2 or 3 hours.
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.
Coolest trail in Rhode Island, depending on seasons and if you actually like to hike or walk on the beach?
Nice hike with some challenging, steep, rocky sections. The rhododendron maximum are in bloom right now and are beautiful.
Loved it...little of everything..climbing, hiking, walking, great scenery! Will go back again!
Great hike! I'm a novice so it was a nice challenge for me. A lot of ups and downs on rocks. Highly recommend this one if you want more of a workout!
challenging and enjoyable. a plethora of different terrains. plus the biggest milipedes I ever saw! can't wait to go back!
it was pretty cool and decently rocky
It was a great trail. I had taking my dog for a walk to the pond. We both had a good time. Especially penny ( my dog) when she hit the water to play. The trail is rocky with lots of ups and downs but worth the challenge.
Great hike. Awesome views of lakes, summits, etc. The entire trail out and back both ways is about 6 miles.
