Haven't seen the place in 20 years, still beautiful as ever!

A little bit of everything!

Did this hike today in a cold day with some snow on the ground. Really lovely walk. The path is sometimes not easy to follow and requires some scrambling over rocks, but it is a great walk, well worth the effort. Definitely 5*!

Fun trail with the pups. Moderate uphill climbs, beautiful scenery, and well marked. The was quite a bit of mud and some snow in mid-March, but nothing a good pair of boots can’t handle. Will definitely be going again!

Nice hike but expected a bit more. I'll need to revisit in the end of spring.

Beautiful spot for a winter walk with the dog. Well maintained well marked trails. Woods, wetlands, variety of woodland plants. Friendly people along the way.

Great trail but the blue blazes could have been better marked

Nice little beach

Great place to walk the dogs

Love this trail once you’re off he boardwalk. The Hope trail is my favorite and felt like I kept finding new spots and things to see. Easy trail and enjoyed it all.

I only had one hour and didn’t complete the hike but I’ve already made plans to come back. Beautiful trail by the river.

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

Very kid friendly. Took 2.5 & 5.5 year olds on red trail. They loved jumping over fallen logs and climbing over one stony stretch!

Walked the short yellow trail and followed the loop around. My boyfriend and I spotted three bufflehead sea ducks, one male and two females, on the water. On the way back to the parking lot an unidentifiable owl flew overhead. Aside from the overgrown bramble this place is a great spot to view a variety of birds.

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

GREAT place! Good moderate trails with rocks, roots, streams with bridges, good inclines (and declines), rocks formations, cairns, and historical scenery (stone walls, Farm foundations, etc).

definitely have a plan of which trails you want to take, and take a picture of the map. it's marked clearly but a lot of the trails intersect and you can go the wrong way pretty easily. they're nice trails to walk on. some of it can get pretty hilly but for the most part it's an easy hike. there's shorter loops you can take but the full loop will take you 3-4 hours.

Urban hike in a park. The trail is very well marked. There is no way you’ll get lost. There are sections that are absolutely lovely. Some sections go past houses, and other sections force you onto the road. Then there are the sections where it looks like people go to party. Alcohol containers, take out food containers, broken glass, drug paraphernalia, and condom wrappers everywhere. If those sections were better maintained this would be a gem in a city setting.

Love this place! Highly recommend it. Nice easy trails, with nice views

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

There are 7 miles of trails here to connect for longer hikes. Several of them are out and back. There are trail fees here to help support the land conservation and animal sanctuary. There are also no dogs allowed so wildlife isn’t scared off. Excellent spot for birders. Not much elevation, but Hanging Rock and the ridge trails can be challenging.

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.

Alot of history within these woods. from the great fire at the original Monastery itself, and the Nine Mens Misery memorial site dating back to King Phillips war.

great hike with a number of vistas. You do have to know where the side trails are to get the great views. the trail is more than moderate.

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"
