Caratunk Wildlife Refuge is a great place to hike on the trails. The refuge is private property, owned by Audubon Society of RI (even though it is located in Seekonk, MA). There are almost 4 miles of trails within the 200 acre refuge. There are several types of habitats including fields, streams, a pond and forest. The trails are well signed and maintained, making the refuge easy to navigate. The barn is home to nature programs, birthday parties, weddings, summer camps and is open for rental within local restrictions. There is plenty of off-street parking. Since it is a wildlife refuge there are rules about collecting/foraging, staying on the trails, not bothering wildlife, etc... Dogs and pets are not allowed. Hours in the winter are 7am to 5pm. Hours in the summer are 7am to 8pm.

Nice! Best to have spikes or poles but manageable without.

Many parts of this are easy, but the parts that are further away from the parking lot can be quite rocky. You should always wear good hiking boots if you're venturing out beyond the immediate parking lot area. Those further out areas I would not call kid friendly.

WalkingGreat!Rocky

Very scenic. Has other Trails off the perimeter trail which is nice if you wanted more steps. One part of the trail was steep if you have small kiddos. Not very crowded on a Saturday afternoon.
