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!

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.

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.

This might be my favorite trail. I love it.

I love this place so much! It always offers up a new sight or sound everytime I go there.

I would categorize this as an easy Trail not moderate. It's pretty much a bike path. There was a pretty good hike about a half-mile in but it didn't last long. From there on it was a flat, no frills bike path. That, along with the annoying gun range nearby made this a below than average hike. There are many other better options in Rhode Island.

Beautiful and easy with a bit of climbing some rocks along the way. The only way it could be better is if it looped.

The beginning of this route is great for hikers. Some farm ruins and nice varied terrain. As you round the pond and take the right turn after a small bridge this very much becomes a mountain biking circuit. There are some nice opportunities to stray off the main trail and explore a bit but overall this course is more suited to biking. I rate it a 2 out of 5 based on the trails it competes with in the area.

Easy out and back hike. Wish there were more to the falls but it's peaceful at least following the river.

Easy to get off the trail, not really interesting scenery... for the drive out here wasn't worth it

Terrible trail markers. Not fun. So much unfulfilled potential.

Very pretty. Footing can be a bit slippery at times with loose rocks. At the top of the falls is actually a place I see people swimming all the time, so bring water shoes if you like taking a dip.

These trails are easy to get lost on, but you can go through pretty much any type of scenery you wish, just pick a direction.

Great hiking spot! Not too busy. A little buggy. I'd go again.

it was challenging in places but very nice

Great! Enjoyed the hike.

On 6/24/17 We hiked the southern half of this trail from rt 165 (ten rod rd) south to green fall rd. It was pretty easy, but wet. what made the hike amazing, besides being with my daughter, was that the mountain laurels were at peak bloom and we hiked through the center of the most enormous grove I'd ever seen. We walked amongst the blooms for almost one mile.

Pros: Nice easy trail, sandal friendly, pond & brook, beautiful flowers, very light traffic
Cons: Trails are not well marked and many offshoots with no clear markings, very near gun range, bugs
Overall it was a pleasant hike and we enjoyed wondering off and exploring some of the offshoots, made it a 6.0 mile hike with an elevation gain of 384 ft.

A nice loop with some cool things to see. Unfortunately I'm guessing it's near a gun range due to all the gun shots. Can't wait to try some of the other hikes in the Arcadia area.

very nice great views of pond

Nice trail, not super well marked, but we had a time.

We walked about four miles of this trail which has a small river of water you can choose to stay beside on either side. Even further away from the water the trail is still wet with water running towards the river. Really awesome rocks and old trees that you can crumble with a swift snap kick and minimal mightiness. I thought this trail was awesome from beginning to end.

Fun day hiking. Even though there had been heavy rain for previous couple days, trails had drained pretty well; not much mud at all.

Great walk for the pup

Nice short and easy trail. Can't beat hiking along the river especially near the falls.

Nice hike but poorly marked trail. Some sort of map is required.

Nice trail. No wildlife
