Great little trail. One of my favorite spots to take my dog on a quick hike. Very scenic with slight elevation changes. Overall a very easy trail for all. I just which the loop was a few miles longer

During hunting season you need blaze-orange to get past Lawton Foster Rd.

Varied terrain and distinct ecological zones, beautiful year round

Good hunting area as well as hiking

Very scenic! Be willing to rock hop to complete the entire walk. Bring your camera and plenty of snacks and plenty of h2O.

The trail listed is 4+ miles but there are many connecting trails which allow you to adjust the length of your hike. Well maintained and marked trails. Wonderful views. Need boots because of some mud, but overall a nice trail year round.

Great history

I live 5 minutes from this campground and try to get out as much as I can - even if for only the short loop! Peaceful trail, never busy! The 8 mile loop is a good workout in wet/snowy weather.

Great trail for area. Moderate in that there are gains, rocks, roots and a blanket of dead leaves that make it slippery when wet or frosty. Beautiful wilderness best in fall or winter as no bugs. Under 4 miles to do red, yellow loops in their entirety connected by blue trail.

Walk it, ride it, run it, blade or board it....the EBBP is the best!

One of the best in Rhode Island. Can be challenging at times but amazing view of Providence at the summit!

I’ve hiked the Coventry blue loop trail starting at the upper (no.1) parking lot many times. It’s always quiet seeing an occasional deer. I’ve also seen MANY hikers with “that look” asking how far to the parking lot. My time goal is always less than an hour for JUST the orange trail then the Coventry loop...I usually move fast and have to jog a bit. Beautiful trail, pretty well marked but can be a CHALLENGE if you don’t hike a lot. FYI: plan your timing because if your car is in the lot after sunset somebody that’s not happy might be out looking for you with a flashlight.

One of my favorites with the pup. Don’t have her leashed, usually come across nice friendly people, many with well behaved dogs as well. The end point at Scarborough is beautiful very instagram worthy. Only thing I’ll say is I find it hard to believe that it’s two miles total, even taking the long loop to the left when you first enter. Very easy walk

Pluses are, good starter "hike", good with little kids and close to providence. Down side is it doesn't feel like a hike. It is so close to the crowds you can see the starbucks plaza through the trees.

Nice mix.

Nice, flat trail. Pretty even with bare trees.

Easy trails, but fairly muddy. I don't usually mind being able to hear roads and such, but it's a little close to civilization when you can see a Starbucks through the bare trees.

Nice, easy walk.

Really nice walk!

My humans took me to do this trail today. The first half of this trail was absolutely beautiful and well marked with white trailblazes. At the peak there are four man-made rock chairs which provide for a wonderful photo opportunity. Once you cross over 165 and approach what would be about the 4 mile mark you intersect with the North South Trail. These trails are marked with blue blazes. The white blazes end and there is no information to provide as to which way one should go to continue on the Mount Tom trail. We followed The blue markers heading south on the north-south trail.. Once you come out to a dirt road there is zero markings left for one to follow unless if you stay on the road (blue markers to left). According to the AllTrails map this is the wrong direction. From this point on regardless of which way you travel there are no markings anywhere. Hence, you really have no idea where you’re going other than if you’re all trails guide is telling you you are on the right path. I would not recommend this hike to anyone without having an AllTrails map. Definitely going to communicate with the Arcadia management team and inform them that the Lack of appropriate markings and information is out right dangerous for novice hikers. Other than that we had an absolutely beautiful hike. Wear shoes that are appropriate for wet muddy conditions.

Good trail to bring pets. Looks like they’ve recently cleared it and built some nice bridges and such

We have done the trails here a few times. This time we started at Lot #2 and went up the Foster side of the Woodlands. Contrary to other comments we did not have any issues with trail blazes. Everything was marked very clearly. There were a few downed trees blocking the trail but that just makes things more interesting. Our trek was exactly 5 miles and 2:50, with lots of breaks for looking at the old foundations and stone walls, etc. The only reason not rated a 5 was due to some very wet sections. I recommend gaiters and waterproof boots after a good rain.

Great hike but should be moderate! People who walk their dogs should pick up after them, husband stepped in dog shit!

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