Rocky New England Woodland featuring a WWII Memorial to a bomber crash site, an abandoned 1940's Boy Scout Camp with views o Providence and the upper bay and a rock quarry with a perennial waterfall. The Wolf Hill Forest Preserve is among my top 10 favorite hiking areas in Rhode Island. There are eight trails traversing the preserve that offer you an option of trail lengths from 2 to 6 miles. This wooded trail can be rocky with elevation gains of about 200 feet. Trail can be obtained at the Conservation Center of Waterview Drive.
Not too hard, and not too easy
An amazing trail with lots of things to see and experience. It isn't too hard on the legs and parking is available. I absolutely recommend this trail for anyone looking for a great memory.
Well kept trails.
This was a great trail for anyone looking to do something with moderate difficulty and a good length. Trails were very easy to follow and there was a decent amount of offshoot trails to try or take on future trips to keep it interesting. Dog friendly!!
My dog, Reggie, enjoyed it. No mosquitos today. Hilly, but not difficult.
Nice hike, good for dogs .
Went on Sept. 10th for the first time to this trail and I have to say that it has a nice mix of easy to moderate inclines (more easy). If you go off trail there is opportunity to keep most of your hike on the moderate to hard levels.
More than one person noted, watch out for mosquito's, true. I am not a fan of bug spray but you will need it on this one. Bring some ketchup as well since you will be eating a number of them too :)
Trails are well marked, green appears to be "the" difficult level.
Light snacks and 1 to 1.5 liters of water should do the trick for this experience. Save the tents, flint, and sirloins for another day.., another trail.
the green trail has a fantastic uphill climb at certain points!!
One of the best in the state, well labeled
Trail was well marked and great for our dog!
Great trail, one of the best marked trails I've been on. You get a nice view at the overlook on the blue trail. It's right over the border from me so I'll be back again soon.
Great trail, come prepared with water and spray yourself down with bug spray! The green trail get a little intense with a steep uphill climb, make sure you wear proper sneakers/trail shoes. We didn't finish the whole thing but plan on coming back soon since it's so close to home for us! Nice hidden gem in beautiful Smithfield.
I really enjoy the various trails in Wolf Hill Forest Preservation! I have hiked this site several times and have always found it challenging in spots but also a nice respite in others. This is a great place to introduce someone to hiking, provided they are in relatively good shape -- it is NOT a "walk in the park!"
Well marked trails, although we veered off the trail yesterday & came upon a rock quarry. (We had a beautiful view of the sunset from here) I have been here several times & have yet to see the waterfall. I would say this is a fair to moderate difficulty, depending what shape you are in. ☺
