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!

A little bit of everything!

This trail was great! I had to cut my hike short due to a quickly dying phone battery, and ended up making my own smaller loop. Luckily there were many nearby gravel roads to help make whatever loop you want. There was a layer of crunchy snow on the ground and the trail was interrupted by many fallen trees from the recent storm. Saw some wildlife around the water's edge. I can't wait to come back and do the full orange loop once spring hits!

Nice little beach

good to go

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.

This is a 6 mile out and back trail. Very nice views of the Ten Mile River all along. It is a paved trail designated as a bike trail, but mostly I have seen walkers. Trail begins at the Rumford Little League fields and goes to Pawtucket. Parking at either end. Trail is suitable for wheelchairs or strollers. One street crossing.

Trail pretty wet from north of Old Ten Rod to Barber Trail.

I did this trail February 11, 2018.it was cool with a little drizzle and parts of the trail were icy, but it was a great trail. Beautiful scenery. Has a little bit of everything...

Today we parked just over the bridge on Manchester Print Works Road off of Great Rd and walked on the paved road around Oley Pond which was a good choice as the trails looked pretty muddy. The pond loop was about 3.5 miles. Very pleasant! We look forward to hiking the trails with appropriate footwear or closer to spring.

This is the Les Pawson loop, not a trail. Paved road with some short off shoot trails that lead right back to the paved loop. about 3 miles of beautiful pond scenery and woods. Many othe rpoeple biking, running, dog walking. Rock Climbers and fishing close by. Cars will pass. I give it 4 Stars, but keep in mind this is not an actual "Trail"

It’s a good trail but consists of quite a few drainage type trench routes and roads that make it very wet, muddy, and icy through the seasons. I enjoy most of the route but 1/3 of it is like that.

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

Easily marked and lots of paths

Good wooded trail to connect with main trail

I walk this trail allot and love it. if you dont want to walk on the pebble beach, before you get to the wTer where the benches are, look to your left. there is a small trail that winds through the woods. At the end go rt, and you will be heading to the point. Might see some seals there.

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.

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.

My husband and I are novice mountain bikers and found negotiating the rocks and roots on the trail a bit difficult, but enjoyed some of the less rocky, single track portions of the trail. All and all we had a great time!

Nice walk minus the horseback riders. They didn’t appreciate me walking a dog in their general vicinity.

Really nice walk
