The creation of the Canonchet Preserve makes it possible to start the Narragansett Trail at Rt 3 now instead of Stubtown Rd. The original trail is on private property, so you must take the Canonchet Trail to get to Stubtown Rd. From my research, the Narragansett Trail orginally started somewhere near Worden's Pond. The sections near Ell/Long Pond and Ashville Pond would be good short hikes for kids.

What a lovely trail! Crammed with mountain laurel stands It will be lovely in early June. There was 2 inches of snow on the ground but the yellow places are super well marked and easy to find.

What a great trail. As long as it’s not wet out this trail is great. I followed the gps directions given from above and it starts on a different trail head. Just follow the yellow markers and when you get to the road just keep running down it, you’ll see the yellow markers again. The trail is very runnable and if you do plan on running you’ll spend most of your time running. There are a few technical areas and some short but aggressive inclines. The trail is follows by a few different lakes and is very scenic. I would recommend this trail for hikers, runners, even family outings. A great little spot.

Happy running,
Ultra Ryan
