The Narragansett Trail crosses a number of roads so many shorter trips are possible. The trail is mostly on gentle terrain, but is punctuated by a few steep, but short, sections. It features Hewitt/Gallup Pond, Wyassup Lake, High Ledge, Bear Cave/Bullet Ledge, Green Fall Pond, Yawgoog Pond, Long Pond, Ell Pond and Ashville Pond. The trail is on land owned by the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation, Oldhaven Associates, The Nature Conservancy, the Pachaug State Forest, the Groton Sportsmen's Club, Rhode Island Boy Scouts, Audubon Society of Rhode Island and the Rockville Wildlife Management Area (RI Department of Environmental Management). NOTE: The portion of the trail between Pendleton Hill Road (Route 49) and Tom Wheeler Road in North Stonington is owned by the Groton Sportsmen's Club; it is closed to hiking from October through March. The rest of the trail is open year-round.

Did the mid section from Ryder road to Legend Wood Road junction, 4.6 miles. Very scenic. The section south of Wtassup Lake had numerous trees down over the trail making it hard to follow in places. Just north of the Lake was recently cleared and had some great vistas and bluffs.

Great views near Lantern Hill. Its not well marked about 1.5 miles beyond Lantern Hill and there's some construction over the trail. If i went the right way, there was a decent portion overgrown with brambles and had to bushwack to find the trail further down. 85% of the trail is well marked and clear. Overall good views and pretty with a good mix of varying terrain. Unless you want a 20 mile hike you'll need a buddy or someone to drop off on one end and park on the other. There definitely were a lot of ticks, long pants were a must.

Did an out and back of the first mile for my first real trail run, and it was pretty intense for a run like that. Can't wait for better weather to get some more time in on this trail.
