Very nice trail with decent variety and a beautiful brook and small bridge, my wife and 4 year old enjoyed it very much. Easy to follow markings, took us about an hour at an easy pace.

Paved trail, walk beside traffic and fairly busy both in terms of traffic and pedestrians. You end up walking near water but not much to see here and it’s fairly boring. There are lots of areas with open space for throwing balls or playing with dogs.

Inspiring and beautiful. With lots of ways to wander as you will. Only did part - not whole - but will be back. Came in late April and did hear gunshots. Not sure what the hunting is like in the area, but may be good to wear bright colors.

Very pretty trail, easy to follow. Part of the blue trail is closed.

Nice and quiet .

Did this hike today on a 55 degree sunny day and was great hike for Rhodie. Hike around the pond is recommended. Got off track a few times so glad I had the all trails app that showed me where I was on the loop

Great wide trail. I parked on Mitchell Lane and walked 4 miles to the Glen and then returned. Very muddy right at the start; I was glad I wore goretex hiking shoes. Easy/flat walk. A lot of it border the National Golf Course. More woodsy once you get closer to the Portsmouth side.

Good trail. We would get to an intersection and take another color. Got lost a little bit near power lines because nothing was marked. Id do it again

This is a nice little trail. I suggest parking on 165 at the Frosty Hollow pond area and taking Shelter trail all the way to Ben Utter. You get to pass through the old camping cabins and Steppingstone falls becomes a reward for a 5.5 mile journey through Arcadia. Round trip is a nice almost 12 miles. Great way to spend a day in the woods.

Great trail. Easy hike. Extremely well marked. We did the red trail (6 miles) which was 5.5 miles or so. The wet areas were all easy to navigate. Highly recommend. Gorgeous day.

small, but beautiful. was there on April 20 seen a good amount of birds even though it was early before migration. birds included was Kestrel, wood duck, pine warbler, towhee. I think it will be a really good birding hot spot for the spring migrants. Beautiful pond.

I'd been told to do this as a Rhode Islander for years. it's got some nice forest parts, but the best is alongside the ocean. great way to spend a weekend day and grab breakfast where the trail ends!

After reading the reviews for this hike and attempting the hike as described by Alltrails, i think its important to note, The Diamond Hill trails are not those trails mapped out here. The Diamond Hill hike is in Diamond Hill Town Park. If you follow the directions alltrails provides here you are actually across the street from Diamond Hill. In a network of unorganized trails.. The town however has provided a pretty good map online for the park and hill (across the street). There are a few networks of marked trails here. Once you get the hang of them this is a pretty fun hike although short. Some of the old tow line gear can still be seen at the top of the hill, that i think is 343 ft, not the 630ft as described here. Happy Trails!

Never knew this was here. Some spots are very over grown, trees are blocking the trails and a lot of water covering parts of the trail. Overall it is a nice hike, trails just need some maintenance. Watch out for ticks when you go off the beaten path to get around the obstacles. All the trails were well marked.

Great trail for walking your dog!

Went off the trail but still a great hike!

Beautiful woods and ponds. If you follow the suggested itinerary counterclockwise, when arriving near Tarbox Pond it seems to go off-trail, or the trails are no longer maintained, I don't know. I took the blue trail that stays away from Tarbox Pond and I reconnected with the suggested itinerary further south.

Directions are wrong can’t check in even when you are on trail

Nice scenic loop. I went during high tide which made it a little wet in a few spots. Definitely nice in the off season, plenty of parking and not many people.

We definitely got lost as this trail isn’t marked great— many side trails with no markers or blazes to tell where to go. We honestly made our own trail when we could hear the highway and walked from the on ramp back our car. Otherwise it’s a great park with a lot of trails to offer— just navigate better than we did!

easy walking trail. It wasn't a busy trail so I was able to let my dog off leash. very wide paths and the sound of the reservoir was relaxing. nice little walk.

Trail passes through off-leash dog park! My puppy loves it here!

It's a good thing I know the trails from horseback or I would have gotten lost. The trail is not marked and I ended up missing a large section. A lot of downed trees blocking the path but easily gotten around. Will definitely try it again!

Nice trail run for beginner trail runners

Loved it, love a of climbing and views to keep the kids entertained. A bit challenging at times especially if you haven't done a lot of hiking but not too bad.
