hadn't done yet. looking forward to the climb in late May. wish me luck I don't get eaten by lion, tiger and bears.... oh my.

Love this area. Great for walking the dog & just hiking all the trails. There are so many little trails & a pond of you cross Lakeview road. I've been hiking here for years, often alone (4'11" female) & have never felt in any danger (for the reviewer TM that said women have been assaulted there) I've even locked my keys in my car here & some nice mountain bikers spent about an hour helping me get them out. One of my favorite spots.

I'd been told to do this as a Rhode Islander for years. it's got some nice forest parts, but the best is alongside the ocean. great way to spend a weekend day and grab breakfast where the trail ends!

After reading the reviews for this hike and attempting the hike as described by Alltrails, i think its important to note, The Diamond Hill trails are not those trails mapped out here. The Diamond Hill hike is in Diamond Hill Town Park. If you follow the directions alltrails provides here you are actually across the street from Diamond Hill. In a network of unorganized trails.. The town however has provided a pretty good map online for the park and hill (across the street). There are a few networks of marked trails here. Once you get the hang of them this is a pretty fun hike although short. Some of the old tow line gear can still be seen at the top of the hill, that i think is 343 ft, not the 630ft as described here. Happy Trails!

Nice hike, we did this in about 4-5 hours late September 2017. The trail was in good condition and easy to follow. The ridge part is great. This can be a longer day hike if you do a bigger loop including mount Flume (start with mount flume) and walking down the valley back to your car.

I did this hike in mid-April 2018 in winter conditions. Spikes are a must. The trail is difficult. We ascended via Falling Waters. There are stream crossings, so wear waterproof boots. Near the summit, the trail becomes especially steep. Views from the summit are spectacular, my favorite in the Whites. We encountered high wind gusts and freezing rain as we crossed the range. Thankfully we had goggles, and these saved the day. What is special about this hike is that you keep these beautiful views across the whole range and as you descend via Greenleaf trail. I can’t recommend this hike enough.

Trail passes through off-leash dog park! My puppy loves it here!

It's a good thing I know the trails from horseback or I would have gotten lost. The trail is not marked and I ended up missing a large section. A lot of downed trees blocking the path but easily gotten around. Will definitely try it again!

One of the best and most memorable hikes I’ve done.

Found hard in areas. Started at cog railroad. It took me seven hours.

April 5, 2018, still icy, bring your spikes! Many thanks to whomever took the time to make the drawing showing the various mountains in the distance and their compass points.

Fabulous! Would happily do it again!

You will be hard pressed to find a better woods trail within Rhode Island. There is a ton to see here; rock walls, Mercer point (and abandoned camp), the quarry, and waterfalls, make for a place you can visit over and over. The trail is well secluded with very little sign of civilization except for passing under the power line access around the halfway point. I was here while it was raining and decided to start beating my chest and yelling like a barbarian, need less to say I had a great time.

One of the most difficult day hikes I've done in my life. Particularly loved the section on the Franconia Ridge Trail. I was glad to have ascended on Falling Waters.

Totally worth the drive up from Point Judith. We took every side path except purple and orange. Trails were marked well except when crossing on gravel at the power lines (look to ground rocks for yellow markers and then across for red markers on sticks). Lots of rocks and roots but we took our dog and he managed fine. Broken glass alert at the lookout (could use a good clean-up brigade. . . would bring a garbage bag to carry out next time).

Nice spot for a walk. The part near the pond was pretty.

Rocky trail with moderate elevation. Be sure to bring a map and have a plan. Points of interest include the WWII crash site, where you will find a memorial and Mercer Lookout (we were able to see Providence and Narragansett Bay.) We lost the trail for a little bit after the lookout and were lucky to find the quarry. The rock formations inside the quarry were pretty amazing. We found the waterfall, but it was very slow flowing and mostly frozen. The view from the top of the quarry was just as beautiful as Mercer Lookout. Nice elevation on the green trail marked “steep” on the map. We will definitely be back to this one.

Great early morning hike after 1-2 inches of fresh snow. Not a strenuous hike at all...brought the dogs. Nice view from the top. Will try this again in the spring - would recommend for anyone looking for a short hike (around 2 hours).

For my first ever backpacking trip, my buddies took me up to the Whiteface loop. I’m an in-ships guy, I’m a collegiate level swimmer, but man did the first climb kick my butt. We climbed to Whiteface but didn’t get there until the sun began to set. We decided to stay on the summit for the night, then hike back down the way we came up. In total it was about 5.5 miles, but the elevation is what I think killed me as a first timer. But SO worth the view in the morning!

My dog and a few friends did this trail in late August of 2017. The trail was very difficult but immensely rewarding. Bring plenty of water and supplies, Views are stunning throughout the trail. Great hike for experienced and well trained dogs.

Fun trail with the pups. Moderate uphill climbs, beautiful scenery, and well marked. The was quite a bit of mud and some snow in mid-March, but nothing a good pair of boots can’t handle. Will definitely be going again!

Great place to walk the dogs

This was my first time hiking this trail, highly recommend giving it a try. Phone battery died when we reached the hut.

Toughest hike for me so far... I loved It! The views are absolutely amazing. Weather was clear and partly sunny as I walked up but you could see the clouds blowing over the ridge line like something out of a movie. Bring your ice cleats or crampons. plenty of places to slip and fall. Especially climbing back down. There was a decent amount of wind the walk up but nothing crazy.

Great trails for biking and hiking , very friendly people there definitely coming back for more

Did it in June tough haul, and in Feb to hermits hut, pack snow temp in 40’s easy like a paved highway and going down on soft pack edges easier!

Awesome hike! Beautiful trails and 300 degree view from the top..my 5 year old with a lil motivation and carrying up a few yards here and there was able to get to the summit..will def be hiking here again

definitely have a plan of which trails you want to take, and take a picture of the map. it's marked clearly but a lot of the trails intersect and you can go the wrong way pretty easily. they're nice trails to walk on. some of it can get pretty hilly but for the most part it's an easy hike. there's shorter loops you can take but the full loop will take you 3-4 hours.
