This trail was established by the South Kingstown Land Trust, which protected numerous parcels of forested land in the area. The terrain is surprisingly varied with numerous hillocks and hollows in the remnants of an eroded terminal moraine from the last ice age. The trail passes through a very old and interesting cemetery and winds through an open oak and pine forest, and through thick stands of mountain laurel. The understory is fairly clear, making it easy to spot birds and other animals. There is one small overlook providing a nice view of Block Island.

Pretty trail, definitely doesn't seem to be six miles, closer to 3-4. Lots of hilly spots to make you work a little harder. Our whole family loved it (my husband and our very active pug)... only encountered two other people.

some of the signage was not so good, but other than that, there was lots of forest and well maintained trails.

Great trail system, well-marked, and with map stands throughout. I loved the portions of the trail that hiked along ridges. Cool cemetery but that's kinda it as far as views and thats my downside.
