It’s a small trail. Very easy. Marsh lands. Carry a bug spray. Not much crowded which was good during this pandemic time. Public restroom closed so be prepared for that. All in all if you want a short walk around Rhode Island, it’s nice

Bird Watching

Great trail for birding. You get a good mix of warblers and mid-succession habitat dwelling birds on top of some gulls and terns if you take the offshoots. Got an awesome view of least terns diving within 10m.

This one is well marked. 2 beaches if you take the off trails. The water required water shoes. Some shady parts and some exposed to the sun. Open during COVID. Total is around 4.5 miles if you take the side trails to the beaches. Nice place to spend an afternoon.

This should not be rated as moderate, it should be easy! I walked this today, the trails are wide enough to drive a truck down, flat and beautifully maintained. It could be a long hike if you walk the whole thing, theres a couple of short side trails. Really nice scenery, wild life and ocean breezes, there's even a pretty decent outhouse in the lower parking lot to boot.

Nice easy stroll through a wildlife sanctuary that was once a military air base that has since grown in. A lot of low shrubs with some sporadic hardwoods and nice views of Ninigret pond.

Very beautiful trails. Great for birders!! I saw my first upland sandpiper here as well as many gold finch, TONS of catbirds, osprey, towhees, red winged black birds- just to name a few. This is a nice easy hike to bring the kids on and there are little access points that bring you right to the water. I can imagine it'd be great for trail running (I'm not a runner, myself but there arnt many obstacles in the way, it's fairly flat and there is tons of room). Happy Trails! Daisy
