Great place to walk the dogs

I completed this hike today March 10, 2018. Started at 6:30 AM. Crisp 32 degrees but clear skies. I have been here before but today was much more challenging. Also more fun! It was a combination of 1 to 3 inches of crunchy snow, some very wet areas, and lots of small branches and trees across the trails because of the recent wet snow. I planned to do the orange trail but quickly decided to cut it shorter and do red trail which is supposed to be 6 miles. My tracker said a little over 5 which was fine. Great morning. Nice winter hiking spot.

Very nice woodland trail. A few wet/muddy spots. Well marked trails.

Perfect amount of information. Kids ran from sign to sign screaming, "another clue!" I felt like I learned about & could recognize more of the wildlife. Quiet - could clearly hear bird calls.

loved it ..definetly a nice place for a hike & maybe fishing & picnic

Nice paved walking path along the Narraganset Bay. Great views at sunrise or sunset, easy walk in and out.

Beautiful pond area. Easy walk. Fun for kids and dogs.

My concerns are the population of deer which leads to ticks. Be sure to use bug spray and check for ticks at home.

beautiful view of the bay some small hills highly recommend the walking path

great spot for a quick hike with the kids. we saw deer and a snake which added to the experience

Walked 2 trails today. The Angel trail goes along the water for a while then cuts back past camp sites. Loved that. 1.5 miles. Then we did the 2 mile blue trail on the other side of the reservoir. That was nice but not as scenic. We had a nice walk. Both are well marked.

Definitely not 4.6 miles.
2.5 at the most as marked.

I ran the loop twice and added the Amy Hart loop and came out at exactly 4 miles.

There’s a little downhill as you enter the trail. Other than that it is pretty flat. Very manicured trail. You might want to walk it the first time! There’s tons of signs with information about the land and the flora. Including maps and pictures.

If you are a trail runner; this is a great place for flat speed workouts.

One of my favorite trails so far. Very well marked. Some rock formations and a lovely bridge. Great for dogs on a leash and people of all skill levels. Perfect for kids. It's a short hike but you can loop it several times if need be.

Did the 8 mile orange trail. There were a few points where I did get a little lost, especially towards the end. I couldn't find where the path continued ended up going around in circles,so I just turned around and made it an out and back instead of looping around.It is a beautiful and quiet trail. I'd recommend it. Didn't see one bug.

I would categorize this as an easy Trail not moderate. It's pretty much a bike path. There was a pretty good hike about a half-mile in but it didn't last long. From there on it was a flat, no frills bike path. That, along with the annoying gun range nearby made this a below than average hike. There are many other better options in Rhode Island.

Flat. Beautiful views. Great for running.

I prefer a hike so I rated it 3. It's a nice place for a walk and very crowded. I don't think it's a moderate walk. Very easy and some benches throughout the walk.

Saw some moonjellies, snails and jellyfish on the beach. Great walk, not nearly as many people as the summer - made for a great day!

The beginning of this route is great for hikers. Some farm ruins and nice varied terrain. As you round the pond and take the right turn after a small bridge this very much becomes a mountain biking circuit. There are some nice opportunities to stray off the main trail and explore a bit but overall this course is more suited to biking. I rate it a 2 out of 5 based on the trails it competes with in the area.

Did the Red (6 mile loop). Very pretty, quiet. Well maintained and well marked easy to follow trail.

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

Some areas overgrown a little probably very muddy in some areas if there is any rain but my dog did really enjoy this walk.

Beautiful forest, alive with birds and Little creatured, quiet and easy to follow markers

very nice hike along the lake, through the woods and some marshes. Mostly secluded except for area along the lake. there are 3 hikes available which are all excellently marked the whole way - we did red which was supposed to be 6 miles. Very happy we did this one!

A leisurely stroll down memory lane : )

Pretty - and it's easy, not moderate

Easy to get off the trail, not really interesting scenery... for the drive out here wasn't worth it

I jog or walk this path pretty much Monday through Friday it's a great stress reliever, not hard at all, and just over a mile and a half. usually a nice breeze and the scenery is breath taking. the map isn't entirely accurate, as they created a loop path now.

Did the western section and the trail seems to go on and off Summit RD. We stayed on the road as I knew the area. at the intersection of Summit and Arcadia Roads the trail looks like it is supposed to go through the fish hatchery but there were signs say no admission. We ended up staying on the road heading back to our vehicle. This is why my 2 start rating.

This was a 2.5 mile walk for us (not sure why it's listed at 4.5 miles). Unique forest growth due to proximity to warmer ocean that features oak and holly, which rarely coexist in a forest. Thanks to truly dedicated volunteers, there are dozens of interpretive and route signs, plus over two dozen handcrafted bird houses made with native tree parts and placed in trees for all to enjoy. Trails are mowed to fight ticks and there's even complimentary bug spray placed along the way. Highly recommend for families!

These trails are easy to get lost on, but you can go through pretty much any type of scenery you wish, just pick a direction.
