Have been here a few times. Always a great walk/hike. My dog loves it too!

Good hunting area as well as hiking

great for many activities. accessable

Very strenuous, but well with the effort. Beautiful location, sites, a cave (which I crawled into), a rock seat, and some other rock formations

The trail listed is 4+ miles but there are many connecting trails which allow you to adjust the length of your hike. Well maintained and marked trails. Wonderful views. Need boots because of some mud, but overall a nice trail year round.

Super fun! I got a little lost (definitely my fault not the trail markers) but a great run. I’ll be back!

I live 5 minutes from this campground and try to get out as much as I can - even if for only the short loop! Peaceful trail, never busy! The 8 mile loop is a good workout in wet/snowy weather.

One of the best in Rhode Island. Can be challenging at times but amazing view of Providence at the summit!

I’ve hiked the Coventry blue loop trail starting at the upper (no.1) parking lot many times. It’s always quiet seeing an occasional deer. I’ve also seen MANY hikers with “that look” asking how far to the parking lot. My time goal is always less than an hour for JUST the orange trail then the Coventry loop...I usually move fast and have to jog a bit. Beautiful trail, pretty well marked but can be a CHALLENGE if you don’t hike a lot. FYI: plan your timing because if your car is in the lot after sunset somebody that’s not happy might be out looking for you with a flashlight.

Amazing trail!! So many options with various difficulties and views.

My humans took me to do this trail today. The first half of this trail was absolutely beautiful and well marked with white trailblazes. At the peak there are four man-made rock chairs which provide for a wonderful photo opportunity. Once you cross over 165 and approach what would be about the 4 mile mark you intersect with the North South Trail. These trails are marked with blue blazes. The white blazes end and there is no information to provide as to which way one should go to continue on the Mount Tom trail. We followed The blue markers heading south on the north-south trail.. Once you come out to a dirt road there is zero markings left for one to follow unless if you stay on the road (blue markers to left). According to the AllTrails map this is the wrong direction. From this point on regardless of which way you travel there are no markings anywhere. Hence, you really have no idea where you’re going other than if you’re all trails guide is telling you you are on the right path. I would not recommend this hike to anyone without having an AllTrails map. Definitely going to communicate with the Arcadia management team and inform them that the Lack of appropriate markings and information is out right dangerous for novice hikers. Other than that we had an absolutely beautiful hike. Wear shoes that are appropriate for wet muddy conditions.

We have done the trails here a few times. This time we started at Lot #2 and went up the Foster side of the Woodlands. Contrary to other comments we did not have any issues with trail blazes. Everything was marked very clearly. There were a few downed trees blocking the trail but that just makes things more interesting. Our trek was exactly 5 miles and 2:50, with lots of breaks for looking at the old foundations and stone walls, etc. The only reason not rated a 5 was due to some very wet sections. I recommend gaiters and waterproof boots after a good rain.

A beautiful place to visit even in winter. I bet it a great place to hike in summer and in fall. Pretty easy hike.

Lots of flooding but great trail

Definitely a work-out. Up and down. As saud by others markers a little hard to follow - blue blends in with trees. A lot of rocks and down trees but all in all an excellent work - out.

Great relaxing walk for the whole family. Not very scenic, but still fun. Lots of rocks and hills!

Very vivid trail via onshore. Second part is more beautiful part as you are walking near ocean line, jumping from one rock to another. Great workout for a day.

I went clockwise down the blue trail and came back towards the trailhead on a red trail. if you're looking for a great cardio workout, I suggest this route! Four to five solid climbs that got my heart pumping. Majority of trail was very muddy after a rain storm 2 days ago.

Trail's are marked well. Great hike with my dog on a beautiful December day. No one else anywhere to be found, great way to start the holiday. I will be coming back!

The map for this location brings you to the Washington Secondary Bike Path in West Warwick. I’m confused by the name and description of this trail. The Carbuncle Pond Management Area in Greene has a Trestle Trail but that is 16 miles north-west of this unrelated bike path.

Classic New England landscape.

great short double loop. mix of cart trails and single track

Clean and easy to get around, trails well marked.

It is not 22 miles and does not go to Connecticut like the map shows. The Snett overlaps into the Blackstone bike path. About 7 miles in you you hit roads then the bike path which is also pathed. A little over three miles out from franklin state forest you hit single track which is not maintained and it’s flat except for the whoop section due to dirt bikes and natural erosion. If you do an out and back connecting the existing SNETT with the Blackstone bike path you can accumulate 22ish miles.

Great trail! Nice views and an easy walk, but be careful! The .6 - .7 marker length of the trail is flooded and the trail they diverted around now also leads to a wetland.. just confusing. Took an extra 45 minutes to get back and Had to maneuver the flooded section of the trail, but after that it was easy. Just keep it in mind

I began the trail at dawn and did not see a soul until near completion of the loop. Some areas of the track are boggy or under water/ice but generally the trail is in good condition and well maintained, and the hike is still thoroughly enjoyable even this late in the year.

Great hike! Easy to get lost, make sure you have orange on during hunting season. You will walk into a gun club area about 400 acres of hunting grounds. Bring a second car as well, unless you want to hike 20 miles! Oh bring snacks you’ll get hungry!

One of the coolest trails on the East Coast. Beautiful views of the rocky shores and water along the way. There are amazing houses/ buildings to look at on the other side. Very well maintained. The beach at the end is so perfect with clear water and pretty wildflowers. Took us a little over 3 hours.
