great hike with a number of vistas. You do have to know where the side trails are to get the great views. the trail is more than moderate.

Nice Trail. Great work out! Up and back!

This was my first down and back trail, this is a good one nice inclines and declines. It was a good hike with beautiful views and gets the heart pumping.

This is not a moderate trail but one of my favorites! Don’t forget to bring water! Absolutely Beautiful!

We love this trail but must disagree with "moderate" rating. This is a difficult trail with scrambling up many rock formations

I've lived in Rhode Island a long time. One thing I've learned is that Rhode Island is flat. Yellow dot trail is more like New Hampshire that little Rhody. Glaciers cut deep grooves making the trail a series of climbs and descents. Less than a mile in from North road I called it quits. Beautiful area. Worth the drive.

Beautiful woods with several steep ups and downs to make it challenging. Unfortunately I couldn't see much of the pond from the overlook due to the trees.

This was ok. easy at first, some definite rock scrambling further down the path. But in August you couldn't really see any of the ponds outside of a glimpse through some trees. Interesting to do once, not sure I'll be back.

Lots of rocks to climb and the kids 5-10 had a great time as well.

This was my first time hiking and loved it. Trail can be hard to negotiate at times do to the angle of the rocks. Use caution if raining, rocks will be slippery. There is basic climbing required, not good if you're just looking to walk. bring lots of water and snacks.

We intended to go to Long Pond but ended up taking the left trail and went out to Asheville pond. Lots and lots of Gypsy Moth Caterpillars. But a very nice hike.

My favorite RI hike so far. Be prepared for a good bit of steep hill climbing. Gorgeous area. Well maintained and marked. Just don't forget you bug spray :)

I will be going back as often as I can.

Beautiful place with plenty of challenging climbs.

This trail is awesome. Has a rock rift to climb (featured in Moonrise Kingdom.) Rhododendrons abound. Set up the hammock and listened to shots fired in the distance.
