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.
