The Narragansett Trail crosses a number of roads so many shorter trips are possible. The trail is mostly on gentle terrain, but is punctuated by a few steep, but short, sections. It features Hewitt/Gallup Pond, Wyassup Lake, High Ledge, Bear Cave/Bullet Ledge, Green Fall Pond, Yawgoog Pond, Long Pond, Ell Pond and Ashville Pond. The trail is on land owned by the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation, Oldhaven Associates, The Nature Conservancy, the Pachaug State Forest, the Groton Sportsmen's Club, Rhode Island Boy Scouts, Audubon Society of Rhode Island and the Rockville Wildlife Management Area (RI Department of Environmental Management). NOTE: The portion of the trail between Pendleton Hill Road (Route 49) and Tom Wheeler Road in North Stonington is owned by the Groton Sportsmen's Club; it is closed to hiking from October through March. The rest of the trail is open year-round.

I completed the section between Rte 49 and Rte 2. As others have mentioned, trail maintenance is needed. A minimal amount has been done as I noticed some of the faded blazes had new nail on blazes attached to the trees. There are trees laying across the trail in many places. Some parts of the trail are getting overgrown. The trail itself was an interesting combination of ledges, a few glacial boulders, and many nice easy stretches through the woods. Every now and then you would get a sizable hill to get the blood pumping. The boat ramp at Wyassup lake made for a scenic place to enjoy our trail lunch. Continuing on, we passed by Beaver Pond. There you can see some old beaver damage on the trees as well as a couple of beaver dams. The ever changing landscape and scenery made for a pleasurable hike today.

It would be great if anyone cared to maintain it. This is a sad disappointment for trail lovers everywhere

I started on Pendleton Hill Rd (RT 49) in North Stonington. The trail is easy top follow as it is well marked. There are, however, several large trees down across the trail and some maintenance is needed for this. I was only able to do 7.6 miles of the trail as the final 3.1 miles was closed just after crossing CT RT 2. Would've gotten 5 stars if I could have finished...

Signage at the North Stonington Transfer station still indicates the trail between Wintechog Rd and Rt 2 is still closed. Attempted anyways however had to quickly turn back since all trees with the blue blaze are removed and no sign of the trail exists. Instead parked at Ryder Rd and did the portion to Wyassup Lake and back. Trail is starting to become overgrown and the blue blazes are faded and hard to see.

Did the mid section from Ryder road to Legend Wood Road junction, 4.6 miles. Very scenic. The section south of Wtassup Lake had numerous trees down over the trail making it hard to follow in places. Just north of the Lake was recently cleared and had some great vistas and bluffs.

Great views near Lantern Hill. Its not well marked about 1.5 miles beyond Lantern Hill and there's some construction over the trail. If i went the right way, there was a decent portion overgrown with brambles and had to bushwack to find the trail further down. 85% of the trail is well marked and clear. Overall good views and pretty with a good mix of varying terrain. Unless you want a 20 mile hike you'll need a buddy or someone to drop off on one end and park on the other. There definitely were a lot of ticks, long pants were a must.

Did an out and back of the first mile for my first real trail run, and it was pretty intense for a run like that. Can't wait for better weather to get some more time in on this trail.

Great trail. I would agree with what others have said. It is easy to overlook what we have in our back yard here in SE New England, and drive by it on our way to VT and NH. Legend Wood shelter is up on top of a hill with nice views, but if you look at the topo, there is no water source nearby. We had to go to the swamp. I have a nice filter and the water looks good (for a swamp), but I would rather not drink swamp water. So, bring a lot of water, or choose a campsite that has a stream. It is a shame, because I think it is best to concentrate the camping impact in a small area, and not spread it around. It is too bad they chose to locate the site away from water. Some motorized vehicle use in the area, makes it a little more accessible to people who consider three cases of beer a camping necessity. One of the maps put out by the DEP shows a spur trail off of the trail to the site heading east towards the Narragansett Trail. I could not find that trail, so we had to go around. It is tempting to bushwhack it, but it is really ledgy (if that is a word).

The Narragansett Trail offers great views and different environments! The entire trail is a 20-mile option for Boy Scouts earning the Hiking Merit Badge.

Just hiked the Narragansett Trail today. It's about a 4.5 mile loop along the RI / CT border. It's a challenging hike with a large rock outcropping, picturesque landscape, and a magnificent hike through a ravine. There are some areas where you will need to have bouldering and water crossings skills. There are sections in the ravine where the trail is narrow with 8 to 12 foot drops into the rocky brook below. I highly recommend for anyone that is confident in their hiking and bouldering skills. This is not the type of trail to go on if you are new to hiking or have vertigo.

This was our families first overnight backpacking experience. We hiked into the Legend Wood lean to (about a mile) and stayed on a full moon night. There was my wife and three children (7,9 & 10). I have attached the CT DEP PDF file showing the trails and the lean to. We started at the boat ramp following the blue blazes until just before the trail turns back to the SE and bush wacked until we crossed the unmarked gray trail. The lean to is on top off a hill with a small ledge to the south. If you continue on the Blue Blaze there is a vista ledge overlooking the Wayussup Lake. We are planning to complete a few more short 1 night hikes to refine our backpacking needs and wants and also to build the children up so that we all enjoy it. The beginning of the trail starts at Lantern Hill, near Fox Woods Casino just off of Rte 2. Someday we plan on starting there and making a 3 day hike to the state border in Voluntown, CT
