Nice trail for beginners and moderate hikers. Loved the surprise of finding a Civil War era family cemetary. Took some pics of gravestones then looked up info on the family there. Fascinating. Kind of hard to follow loop due to side trails, not marked well, but didn't get lost.

This made a pleasant, easy cold-winter hike for January. The trail is unblazed, but Weber's Weekend Walks in Rhode Island sets out the path.

It really would be great if we could have more of the rail bed available to us.
