Great little trail. One of my favorite spots to take my dog on a quick hike. Very scenic with slight elevation changes. Overall a very easy trail for all. I just which the loop was a few miles longer

Awesome area to snow shoe, cross country ski, or walk along the trail!

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

Pluses are, good starter "hike", good with little kids and close to providence. Down side is it doesn't feel like a hike. It is so close to the crowds you can see the starbucks plaza through the trees.

Nice, flat trail. Pretty even with bare trees.

Easy trails, but fairly muddy. I don't usually mind being able to hear roads and such, but it's a little close to civilization when you can see a Starbucks through the bare trees.

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.

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

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 trail. Went first week of December. Was quiet. Well marked path and very scenic. Wonderful river and has numerous parts that gain elevation. Challenging for young kids. Great trail. No parking lot, but area to pull over into.

An awesome trail.the only reason I did not rate all of them is because there was no parking spot. But I love this trail!

This is one of my favorite trails!it was a great loop. nice bridges not much water really good trail.but was very cold.so you should get lots of winter gear on when you go on this trail. but overall loved this trail!

Lots of rocks with the leaves down makes it difficult for footing, wet in areas but nice trail against the river

Nice walk close to home. Great place to with the family or the dogs. Lots to explore.

Great trail for hiking. Bring a map. Well defined trail but intersects with numerous other trails within Arcadia. Lots of options to make hike as long as you want. Easily can do loop just around Pond, about 1.5 miles total. Great views. Wear your orange during hunting season. Good parking lot.

Lincoln woods is a gem of a place one can feel a deep woods experience even though a major highway is always less than 2 miles away .

Nice,beautiful trail however the white blazes leading to the Falls could be marked better; used the All Trails map to help us with that!!!

It was so nice for me and my dog

Awesome.. easy trail.. great for walking, jogging, dogs

had first date with my girlfriend here. awesome spot.

Trail was not clear when we reached the dirt road. I agree that “ easy” rating would be an issue for anyone not in shape for climbing.

This loop was more of an Easy Hike than Moderate personally, lots of VERY easy terrain, there were no gains or descents that required even paying attention to footing, the grade transitions were all smooth and easily navigated with not even an adjustment in walking speed required. Yes the terrain can be rocky and there are a number of roots to contend with, but neither of these were problematic at all. Rocks and roots were all less than maybe 6 inches tall at max for the most part, no scrambling, didn't even need trekking poles. We got lapped by a trailrunner a few times, and we saw children, elderly and clearly novice hikers having zero issues with the terrain itself.

Trail markings at some of the junctions and diversions were a little lacking and did require consultuing the map, but in 4.4+ miles, the 4 or 5 times this was required wasn't that much of a big deal.

All main / mapped trails were open. Only a very small handful of offshoot and unnamed trail loops were closed for habitat recovery as of 09/23/2018.

Would have been a 5 star "Easy" hike if it weren't for the few issues with trail markers not being placed at all the junctions/diversions.

Great trails! Wonderful for dogs!

The dirt road is long and very steep with some good size dips in it. Highly recommend taking a Jeep or at least an suv or truck down here unless you park at the top and walk down! Beautiful waterfall!!! Mandatory orange vest or colored shirt. We unfortunately didn’t get to walk the trails today since we didn’t have that color on but did sit by the water which was flowing beautifully this morning.

Its a beautiful trail and a decent hike, but I couldnt get over the traffic im the background, logging roads, garbage truck went by on a dirt road. All that noise ruined the secluded feel for me.

The only thing that was not closed for restoration was the WWII memorial but it was very nice. Trails are well marked, though we did get turned around a few times. The terrain gets to be very rocky with lots of tree roots which can start to get annoying but otherwise, it’s decent.

An amazing place to hike during all seasons. A bit let down today however, the waterfall was bone dry. The trails were gorgeous as always. Completely kid friendly also. We had five children with us, ages 9 to 13.

Short, open, flat and wide trail. Good quick walk with dogs/kids.

Hike here often with my dog. One of my favorites for a quick little get away

When was the last time this trail was blazed? Too many unmarked trails. This could be a nice trail.
