The trailhead is to the left of the entrance drive, but the loop around the property is one-way going counterclockwise. Drive all the way around the loop, and as you come down the side of the monastery buildings, a small parking lot will be directly ahead of you. The trail starts there. Great year-round hike in a quiet area.

This place DOES NOT enforce their leash rules. If you have a dog that doesn't like other dogs or if you are afraid of dogs go somewhere else. We went here today and had to leave after going only 100 yards in because we ran into 2 different people who had their dogs loose. We have dogs that love people but not other dogs. So although we followed the rules we had to leave because of totally ignorant people who feel the rules do not apply to them.

Nice place otherwise but I would bring pepper spray in case you come across loose unfriendly dogs. The leash rule is nothing more then a big joke.

It’s a beautiful trail. Rocky, but it helped today because it was very muddy. The trails weren’t marked very well. On the app it says they’re red. While walking a majority of the “marked” trails brought me to people’s driveways, or back yards. While following “red trails” it would then go from red, to green, to yellow, to black, to pink, to blue which made it very confusing and I got lost quite a few times. I do like an adventure, but I would not recommend bringing kids for the moderate portion of the trails. My dog did do fine.

Great trails for all skill levels.

A beautiful place to visit even in winter. I bet it a great place to hike in summer and in fall. Pretty easy hike.

Great trails! Wonderful for dogs!

Hike here often with my dog. One of my favorites for a quick little get away

Beautiful, serene

Used to go as a kid and it’s so much fun to walk on hills, see beautiful wildlife, great scenery!

So much of this once beautiful place has fallen in disrepair. lots of trash around where haunted hill is done as well as along the blue trail to the top. vigorous climbing up if your looking for some leg work!

What a fantastic little find! Not only are there numerous trails to explore, but there are beautiful gardens near the Senior Center that are definitely worth a look. I’ll definitely be back.

Very nice place to hike, but the trails/paths are NOT marked and there are many. Right from the start, we were continually wondering which way to go. Luckily we had Map My Walk going on the cell phone which helped us find our way back to the very nice parking area at the head of the trail. With some trail markings, this would be an excellent place to hike.

If it wasn’t for the app we would had taken a very different route. The trail wasn’t marked at all. To start it you have to go between private property.

Great 2.5 mile trail run up and around the ski area. This is a cool property and the hills make it a nice aerobic workout. The geology is interesting too, really nice white quartz everywhere and some impressive cliffs on the south side. Get out and do this, it's awesome!

If your a rock hound you can find some cool milk quartz crystals. youll find this behind the baseball fields. the trail map that was given is actually across the street behind the ice cream machine.

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!

We parked at the library and had a nice hike on the well-marked trails. I couldn’t find the trail head at first, so I went into the library and the lady at the front desk directed me and gave me a map. The map turned out to be very helpful as there are several connecting trails.

Alot of history within these woods. from the great fire at the original Monastery itself, and the Nine Mens Misery memorial site dating back to King Phillips war.

Not a fan of all the “extras” they have set up all the time, ie halloween/Christmas decorations.

Easily marked and lots of paths

It’s important to note that we didn’t do the park trail loop, but rather made our way up to the top of Diamond Hill via the trail on the other side of Diamond Hill Road. It was about 1.5 miles to get from the parking lot to the top and back. There was about 4 inches of new snow on the ground. It was beautiful and a lot of fun. We started out by going straight up the hill via the old ski run and then made our way to the hilltop using the trails. We had our kids with us, one of whom is 6 yrs old, and they all did just fine. We’ll return in the spring to check it out sans snow, too! Definitely our favorite hike in Rhode Island, so far.

I didn’t hike the trail prescribed instead I climbed Diamond Hill itself. There’s some nice views from the top. The scrabble over the rocky ledges is fun. Only a few remnants remain of the ski areas that were once here.

Fun, challenging trail after auspicious beginning through a junkyard to get to trail head. 5 stars if it had been marked. Good hills.

No map. No markings. The businesses and residents living around the trail head have posted “private property” and “no trespassing” signs around the start making it hard to identify where you can actually go. Trails lead into private property. Mountain bike trails are not listed online and if you accidentally take one they can lead you to jumps, very steep drops or no where at all. Unless you are from the area or are with someone who is I would not recommend coming here.

wonderful trails but not really well marked. I've been hiking these trails for 25+ years and never tire of it. wildlife, stonewalls, remnants of granite blocks from burnt monastery. I rate this a 5 as it offers diverse conditions❤️

Not able to find the actual trailhead and, as others have said, trails are not well marked. Did lots of backtracking as the trails just seem to stop...one of them appeared to dead end in someone's backyard.

The map is confusing and misleading. This trail runs on side roads a lot.

Was great, we went on a warm day last spring. A lot of people walking dogs. We will bring the pup next time.

This place would be so nice if the trails were marked! Loved the incline, but most trails are. It kept clean....lots of tall grass. After an hour of trying to stay on the AllTrails map, we kept getting lost and figured it would be best to head back.
