Dog friendly near RI Map

Beautiful pond area. Easy walk. Fun for kids and dogs.

My concerns are the population of deer which leads to ticks. Be sure to use bug spray and check for ticks at home.

Easy to get to, beautiful trail, need the GPS to navigate.

on Fairhaven Trail Loop

Just and FYI... since we Didn’t actually get to walk the trail. We were here with our dogs. The trail head/ parking begins at the Walden Pond boat launch. Dogs are not permitted on the portion of Trail from the boat launch parking along the south edge of Walden Pond.

great spot for a quick hike with the kids. we saw deer and a snake which added to the experience

nice trail through woods and along fields and golf course. There is more beyond where I turned around at Mitchell Lane

great trail.

Some areas overgrown a little probably very muddy in some areas if there is any rain but my dog did really enjoy this walk.

Not super well marked, but I had cell reception during most of it allowing us to follow our loop. My 3 year old walked the majority of the trail!

Fairly easy hike. Pretty quiet and peaceful. Parking is tricky, I parked at Walden Pond where there is a charge and the lot fills up very fast. Hike to the back of Walden Pond, cross the rail tracks and you will be in Wright Woods. Great hike with kids. There are many forks in the trail, as there are several short cuts and those weren't labelled very well.

horseback riding

My friend and I took our horses here on a weekend and we pleasantly surprised. We didn't come across too many people and there was a few places to go down to the river with our horses to get in the water. Some trails which are marked very well were too rocky for the horses to go down but there were alternative routes. There was even a side trail with some homemade jumps to spice things up a little. My horse is tall so some tree branches were a little low for me but they weren't impassable. There are two different parking areas and the one we parked at didn't leave a lot of room for the truck and trailer but we made it work. We will definitely go back.

paddle sports

Great spot for an easy and quiet paddle. There are large areas of lily pads but otherwise a nice ride.

Would have been a fun walk if it weren't for the horseflies that started attacking about 100 feet in. We gave up and decided to go to the beach instead. Also, dogs are only allowed on the marsh side - not on the beach side - of the loop (during the summer) so there wasn't even a view of the beach, just the marshes and dunes.

Not a good walking trail at all, unless you adore trudging through deep sand and enjoy the stench of stagnant water in the marshes. We went about .7 of a mile in before deciding to scrap this one and walk back. Go down the road a bit to the Old Briar Patch Trail if you want a nice walk. :)

I love this network of trails! Trails are well-marked, there are well-designed maps available online, & there are plenty of options. Very dog-friendly (be aware that people do drive on the gravel road that goes to the point), nice views along the river.

Pretty trail, definitely doesn't seem to be six miles, closer to 3-4. Lots of hilly spots to make you work a little harder. Our whole family loved it (my husband and our very active pug)... only encountered two other people.

The orange trail is really overgrown but everything is beautiful!

Nice easy hike to a great spot on the knob.

Loved it!! Trails were great! Got a little lost a couple times, but that always happens the first couple times I check out a new trail! I did use my MapMyHike app and we toke a picture of the maps before heading out which helped us get back on track! All in all I loved it and will be going back!!!

some of the signage was not so good, but other than that, there was lots of forest and well maintained trails.

A good walking trail. It can be very sunny in the summer and extremely (extremely!) windy in the winter. So dress accordingly and always bring a hat or scarf in the off seasons just in case, you can always leave it in the car. Don't forget water! Also the trailhead markers by the road say, Trail 1, 1.5 miles (or similar) they mean it's one and a half miles OUT, not the loop! Beach is a good winter walk and a good place for a few shells but the beach is rocky so footing can be iffy at times.

pretty sand dunes in looped trail

Very flat and long. Much longer than expected. The scenery does not change often but is wonderful. You can also turn on multiple trails along the way in order to have a lighter hike.

Nice easy short walk with great views. This was a warm fall day with the sun shining bright and a lite breeze. The trail was well marked and easy to walk around a peninsula. It's a sanctuary as well. There is limited parking at the trailhead.
