Snake Den State Park is located along Route 6 in Johnston, Rhode Island. The 1000 acre undeveloped property boasts self-guided walking trails, beautiful trees, flowers, plants, and working farm as well. The foliage is something to behold in the fall. Snake Den is accessible at a small parking lot past Dame Farm on the right hand side, which is located on Brown Avenue in Johnston.

I'm new to the hiking thing. So this was def a nice start. It was very easy!

Clearly marked, decent, short trail that is close to major shopping area. Highlight of the trip was seeing a wild turkey with 11 of her baby turkeys. They must be used to seeing humans because they weren't scared of us and allowed us to get close for pictures.

Not the best trail but really cool pit

Very short and noisy, it's alongside a very busy road. You also walk under and next to giant power lines. Well marked but One hike was enough for me.

It's a truly nice place for a relatively short walk/hike, especially for someone new to hiking or forest walking. I really have nothing to complain about -- and I hike there often if a short walk is all I'm wanting. . . but it really won't get your heart pumping.

It was ok just a simple nature walk. A pleasant enough Sunday afternoon. Very short and not always clearly marked. I did not go alone but I did not ever feel uncomfortable. And it doesn't take at all seem like someone is living in the woods. It could be a very cute walk with kids.

Nice trails, but I was here laone this past Sunday &felt like I was being follwoed the entire way through.
I'm always on the lookout for deer & bear, but what I found following me truly creeped me out.
Stood at the top clearing near the end of Orange trail & called out "Show yourself so I can get your photo"!
I got something peeking at me around a tree. CREEPY! I posted the photos here on the page.
Then continuing on the Blue trail, I came across the logs & branches at the base of the large tree. A friend went ot further investigate it the next day & she has pix of toilet paper rolls, etc near it. So there is SOMEONE living in these woods for sure. What they are doing here? I don't know but I will NEVER walk this trail alone again!

An easy little hike. Just enough to get some time in nature without traveling far at all.

Great place for a hike on a Sunday. There were not many people so the crowds were small. I tried my hand at all the trails Powder Mill Ledges had to offer. The yellow trail gets a little noisy due to the proximity of the highway. Overall a great place to take a hike and to observe nature. Please visit for more information.

trail system consists of three loops. I combined the three for 1.9 miles. easy and family friendly with convenient access to all of the food/shopping on rte 44. little slice of nature amidst civilization, which is occasionally visible from the trail.
