Rocky New England Woodland featuring a WWII Memorial to a bomber crash site, an abandoned 1940's Boy Scout Camp with views o Providence and the upper bay and a rock quarry with a perennial waterfall. The Wolf Hill Forest Preserve is among my top 10 favorite hiking areas in Rhode Island. There are eight trails traversing the preserve that offer you an option of trail lengths from 2 to 6 miles. This wooded trail can be rocky with elevation gains of about 200 feet. Trail can be obtained at the Conservation Center of Waterview Drive.

This hike was great, the green trail is hard but manageable.

The lookout is amazing. My 4 and 6 yr made it.

Not a loop at all, so many trails cross crossing it wasn’t even enjoyable as you always had to be guessing which way to go

Some nice hiking trails nothing spectacular. The rock outcroppings on the Mary Mowrey trail are worth exploring. The view from Mercer look out is pleasant if not outstanding. Would be nice if they could get some maps in the map boxes. Overall Wolf Hill is worth doing at least once.
