Small, but very quiet, peaceful, and beautiful. Took us about two hours to make the biggest loop, and that included many stops at the waterfront and bridges. It's mostly shaded and a nice walk, just beware of tree roots across the path. Limited parking and very narrow dirt roads to get there, but once you're there it's a nice hike.

This rail was poorly marked, we got lost numerous times and finally left out of frustration

Nice short hike, the dog loved it.

Nice, peaceful walk through the woods. We didn't run into anyone else while there. This is a Wildlife Refuge, so dogs are not allowed. Trails are well marked. Lots of of roots and rocks, so watch your footing. (and don't forget the bug spray).

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.

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.

Just love it here, easy trail, much to see.

good to go

Perfect for kids. Very easy and lovely.

Did this hike at the end of December. I loved it. Very peaceful, lots to see, and well marked. A must do!

Cool ride through dirt roads to this private oasis. A dam that creates a little waterfall..a couple bridges that go across streams. Perfect trail to run a couple loops. Wear bright colors, if in hunting season. You're safe, but I feel better doing that. Really pretty foliage in the fall. Serene

my favorite trail so far in Rhode Island

Nice trail for first time out. 2 loops to choose from. We combined them.

No dogs allowed...... not happy to see this on the trail and not in the description...

Very nice trail, mostly in forest with sparse understory. If you walk it counterclockwise, follow first yellow blazes of Breakhart trail, then the white blazes of Shelter trail southwards. At Frosty Hollow pond, take the John Hudson trail northwards to go back to Breakhart pond.

Great trails for a moderate workout. Beautiful scenery!

Wonderful spot . The blue trail takes you to pond and a little waterfall . Saw only 1 hiker . Very peaceful . No dogs or bikes allowed . Very few bugs .Well worth the visit . The orange trail forks to left and will take you to a small stream . A+ place

Hiked the blue trail and it was absolutely beautiful!

We loved this trail, so much to see.

Went on this trail for the first time yesterday and I'd have to say it's one of my favorites thus far. It's well maintained and well marked. I enjoyed the openness of the trail, the tall trees, and wild flowers. There's also a cemetery there that was pretty neat to check out and some interesting bugs along the trail. Also spotted a hummingbird. Good spot for photographing wildlife and nature. There's a pond there also and many benches along the trail. Unfortunately, it is NOT dog friendly as dogs are not allowed here.

It's a beautiful hike and it gives you the opportunity to pick your length by providing different trails tracked by different colors. This hike is safe for children and has a beautiful view of the water. Also had a cemetery near by that you can check out.

Easy hike. Easy to follow loop.

We love this trail. Peaceful, easy hike.

You can't bring your dogs here wish I knew that before the 30 minute drive

Loved the peacefulness of this trail. If you are looking for an easier hike, with lots to look at, this is it.

nice trail for a winter day did the blue trail very nice walking around pond

Perfect hiking to do with a toddler. Very easy hiking and it's just the right distance. Took about an hour with my two-year-old and he walked a little more than half of it. I carried him the rest of the way. There's three or 4 foot bridges to keep it interesting for the kids. He really enjoyed running on the little bridges on top of the swampy stuff.
