not the greatest. I ended up by the baseball field before turning around to take another path. I did see a beautiful hawk but there was a lot of trash and was too easy for my liking.

Made it over the bridge, behind Shaw’s before the trail became impassable. Started at Rhodes on the Pawtuxet and made it to a kind of open area, you could totally let your (good) dog run around here off leash. Keep left and you’ll get to the bridge. Path leads to baseball field if you keep straight. Won’t come here again.

This trail was not well maintained. There was so much trash everywhere. I don’t recommend this one.

Very disappointed. There was a lot of garbage everywhere and a large portion of the trail takes place behind buildings and near roads.

The Cranston side (behind Rhodes on the Pawtuxet out to Warwick Ave.) is a nice walk, but the Warwick side is fairly overgrown, with quite a bit of litter (mostly discarded beer bottles and cans). There are a couple of downed trees that are actually across the path, and the entire area is rife with poison ivy so be aware. There are several bridges that go over drainage sites. The path is poorly marked and there are several side trails, including one that goes out to Fay Field on the Cranston side. Using the Alltrails app is probably the best way to assure you stay on the right path, although it's difficult to get lost in such a small wooded area.
