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.

Good climbs, and nice Rocky areas to get some burns in. took the green trail and the steep section is really steep great if your training to build stamina. really didn't see all that much trash, but haven't yet been all the way to Mercer point. lots of trails to take and change it up.

Good trek, fairly well marked. Lots of trash and broken glass, unfortunately.

This place was great but over past year or so Aholes are trashing the area.
spray paint covers every rock, garbage and beer bottles all over.
They ruin 1 spot then move on to a new clean area to trash!

Not much to do and the kids were bored, but I. enjoyed the quiet and the trails we're really well marked. It was really hot so the shade was nice but definitely bring bug spray, they were pretty thick in some places. Recommend bringing your own map, they were out when we went so I was glad I did.
