Length: 1.6 mi • Est. 40 m
This hike is a combination of the Browning Mill Pond and Tefft Hill hikes found in Walks in the Watershed. A Browning Mill Pond Roaring Brook hike is also found in Weekend Walks in Rhode Island. The hike is about 5 miles long, and should take around 2 hours. Most of the walk is on single-track woodland trails typical of Arcadia. There are some small hills, and the trails are wet in spots and often rocky. Show more

Length: 15.4 mi • Est. 7 h 5 m
NOTE: It has been reported this trail has temporary closures. Please see the park's website for up to date information. The creation of the Canonchet Preserve makes it possible to start the Narragansett Trail at Rt 3 now instead of Stubtown Rd. The original trail is on private property, so you must take the Canonchet Trail to get to Stubtown Rd. From my research, the Narragansett Trail orginally started somewhere near Worden's Pond. The sections near Ell/Long Pond and Ashville Pond would be good short hikes for kids.Show more

The Wood River is a perfect half day jaunt. Terrific variety from a lost nature setting to cruising through rustic civilization. Thick overgrown streams with a full share of bottom scrapers to a virtual wide open lake at trip's end make the Wood River the perfect small adventure for kayak or canoe. Two easy portages figure in, but are a breeze. Please be respectful of trout fishermen along the way, as Silence is Golden when you're trying to catch a golden trout!Show more
