Nice, no litter but a few dog poop bags ! Why pick it up only to leave plastic bag behind ? Otherwise really enjoyable. Whistling Cave trial was my favorite. Will definitely be back.

Started at the Powissett entrance and walked on a few of the marked and unmarked trails. Definitely coming back - trails well maintained, dog friendly, very nice area. Parking is a little tight in that lot.

A great trail for easy to moderate hiking with enjoyable scenery. The trail itself is well-maintained and had clear trail posts. We stuck to posts that read "Walleston" which were numbered. Although, there isn't necessarily a clear view of landscape at outlook point of the "hill," there are many beautiful sites along the path with a cascade, a few mini bridges across baby streams, beaver pond, and a few boulder sites, one campground for backpackers, and a stone fence along the trail.

We went on a sunny afternoon in the 50's in April, so no more snow. Little human traffic, only came across one other group. We finished in 1.33hr, made a few stops along the way but also lightly jogged the straightaways just for fun.

Parking available at the beginning of the trail. There's a map that shows "spots" for specific points of interest. Overall, a trail I'd come back to with friends who have not been and maybe for super low-key overnight backpacking.

Awesome loop. Bushwacked up Cedar Hill first, from the south, then noticed the remains of a few trails. I stumbled upon a mini-quarry which might explain the old trails from the north and west. Pretty cool, see waypoint on my map. Continued on Ridge Trail then bushwacked up Mine Hill to find the summit (see waypoint). Cool area up there. Finished up via Cheney and East-West. This is a cool trek, give it a try.

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!

Gone several times for short lunch trips, great moderate hike to go on with friends & family.

I am a veterinary student in Grafon, MA and love bringing my dog here for study break walks/hikes. Mammoth Trail and Whistling Rock Caves are our favorites when we are feeling a bit adventurous. Taking a walk down to the pond is also an easy relaxing trip.

Just an update. I am one of the ranger here at West Hill. Due to safety reasons and changing boundary areas with private property owners along this loop trail we have had to close the northern section of this trail. Signs are posted on the east and west sides of the trail. We have begun clearing two new loop sections of the trail that will allow further access to the interior of the forest on a Red blazed trail on the west side (left side of the map) of the former loop trail and an Orange blazed loop on the east side (right side of the map) of the former loop trail. We will be posting new maps and signs soon.

For me this is one of the most beautiful trail, biking, fishing, water falls, wild life in the blackstone river. Going from town to town , seeing history site. Is an all day nature attraction.
Need to be ready with water and healthy snacks, is a very long trail.

Nice wooded area with variable terrain. It is moderate for an MTB. In warmer months there are a good deal of hikers and dog walkers so be cautious and control your speed. Some of the single tracks can be technical due to exposed roots. Usually a decent workout.

Lots of cool boulders with scrambling opportunities. The hike can be customized in length and difficulty.

Decent hike, was looking to do some photography but nothing too astounding

nice walk around the lake. very good marked with yellow signs

Gorgeous water views all the way around. Plan on 3+ hours, it is definitely longer than 6 miles. You are almost always with in sight of a house or road, you are not out alone in nature. We saw one park ranger and one other group of hikers the whole way around. Despite all the houses it was very peaceful (in February).

Easy, straight trail. A little boring, but still a decent gravel trail.

Very nice winter hike. I altered the route and was glad I did. Instead of coming back on Park Loop Road, I took the Whistling Cave Trail. Besides being able to see the Whistling Cave, this trail was much less traveled and has a more rustic vibe. There are a few small brooks you have to cross when the water is higher . There are some beautiful rock formations there too! PS wear some micro spiked if going in the winter. There are some icy areas.

Recently did this trail ! The chasm had a lot of ice but we managed to do it . Beautiful and well maintained trail !

Not a fan of all the “extras” they have set up all the time, ie halloween/Christmas decorations.

Easily marked and lots of paths

Loved this hike! Lots of well marked trails with scenic views. The peak view was pretty awesome, especially for such a low altitude, and included the Boston Skyline. There was even a decorated Christmas tree at the top. Sweet surprise.

It’s important to note that we didn’t do the park trail loop, but rather made our way up to the top of Diamond Hill via the trail on the other side of Diamond Hill Road. It was about 1.5 miles to get from the parking lot to the top and back. There was about 4 inches of new snow on the ground. It was beautiful and a lot of fun. We started out by going straight up the hill via the old ski run and then made our way to the hilltop using the trails. We had our kids with us, one of whom is 6 yrs old, and they all did just fine. We’ll return in the spring to check it out sans snow, too! Definitely our favorite hike in Rhode Island, so far.

Great ponds, so pretty and interesting terrain. Doggie heaven. Blue trail is my fav, adding yellow trail for a hike to
The peak.
Take a map, it's easy to get confused with all the trails. Fairly well traveled so no worries

I didn’t hike the trail prescribed instead I climbed Diamond Hill itself. There’s some nice views from the top. The scrabble over the rocky ledges is fun. Only a few remnants remain of the ski areas that were once here.

Great property. Went from Caryl Park all the way down to what I call Perkins Cove (first mill pond, site of colonial era wood mill). This is an awesome pond that was full to grade in a driving rain this day (still soothed my soul!). Such a nice spot, one of my favorites in all of Dover (have a seat, relax)! A beautiful erratic on the main trail near Caryl, check it out. Enjoy!

Fun, challenging trail after auspicious beginning through a junkyard to get to trail head. 5 stars if it had been marked. Good hills.

No map. No markings. The businesses and residents living around the trail head have posted “private property” and “no trespassing” signs around the start making it hard to identify where you can actually go. Trails lead into private property. Mountain bike trails are not listed online and if you accidentally take one they can lead you to jumps, very steep drops or no where at all. Unless you are from the area or are with someone who is I would not recommend coming here.

Awesome trail, it is a little hard for younger kids. I've been 3-4 times I love it every time because it is so unique.

Great views and very well maintained but the markings are unclear at times and you might get turned around. Good for dogs but most are off leash.

The peak is really nice.
