Great beautiful hike with the pup & friends :) happy to see it being kept clean!

Great first hike back into the season. The initial scramble going counter clockwise on the trail will get your heart beating but it’s not long at all. The rest is easy going and beautiful. My dog had a great time!

Easy and clean.

Una gran aventura ..

Great hike

Unbelievable. Not for the faint of heart when it comes to heights. Petrified of heights but was able to conquer this track. Beautiful views, wildlife and all nature has to offer. Great way to spend Earth Day 2018.

It’s a nice hike on a gravel trail for the family but it was wall to wall people up and down making it less enjoyable. Perhaps try it on a cold and cloudy day.

Very pretty trail, easy to follow. Part of the blue trail is closed.

Nice and quiet .

Good trail. We would get to an intersection and take another color. Got lost a little bit near power lines because nothing was marked. Id do it again

This is a nice little trail. I suggest parking on 165 at the Frosty Hollow pond area and taking Shelter trail all the way to Ben Utter. You get to pass through the old camping cabins and Steppingstone falls becomes a reward for a 5.5 mile journey through Arcadia. Round trip is a nice almost 12 miles. Great way to spend a day in the woods.

Great hike with a beautiful view of the falls!

Nice hike. Loose rocks can make it a little nerve-wracking at times if you have a fear of heights. Easy-lower moderate in my opinion if you have a sense of adventure. Will do again soon!

Mt Higby is one of the best hikes that i have ever done especially because of the scenic views from the top and the hike trial itself. Awesome one...

There's a super difficult scramble in the very beginning, but then it levels out and is not that hard, just a bunch of ups and downs. We had planned to take the blue trail there and then the violet trail back, but the violet trail turned out to be just a simple walk, so we quickly switched back to the blue. Very fun overall, and a nice challenge! It took us 3.5 hours round-trip, with about 30 min of lunch.

IT IS NOT MODERATE. UNLESS YOU LIKE TO ROCK CLIMB. The view is great, the waterfall is beautiful but the trail is hard. I’m not new to hiking but am not an expert. They should get more than one type of person to rate the trails, because whoever rated this one has a very weird definition of “moderate”.

We definitely got lost as this trail isn’t marked great— many side trails with no markers or blazes to tell where to go. We honestly made our own trail when we could hear the highway and walked from the on ramp back our car. Otherwise it’s a great park with a lot of trails to offer— just navigate better than we did!

Pleasantly challenging — scrambles could be tough if you’re afraid of heights/don’t have much confidence in yourself...definitely worth a try for anyone feeling adventurous! Just be mindful of loose/slippery rocks, as an avid hiker I almost took a tumble a few times!

start hike from Falls River rd. because they closed the gate to the entrance road... you have to walk a mile and a half just to get to the trail now... on a long dirt road.. not fun.

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.

I like this one because the trail is along the cliffs so you get the feeling of being high up most of the time.

A pretty awesome trail that my family and I have hiked many times throughout the years.

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).

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.

Excellent Hike!!! It exceeded my expectations! Great Views! A Great Workout and fun to be with friends! Happy Exploring

would not consider this moderate, but nice outshoots for the lake.

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!

Nice hike, nice views

My favorite trail, I’ve seen maybe three people ever in the dozens of times I’ve been hiking here. Trail is easy to follow, brings you through streams and different terrain. Gated off in the winter.

I only had one hour and didn’t complete the hike but I’ve already made plans to come back. Beautiful trail by the river.
