Colt State Park

Very nice resource in historic Bristol, RI. Part of the trail meanders through the woods but most of it is through the beautiful park. Colt Park is located on the water with many great views. Rest rooms are available and dogs on leashes are welcomed. Bring a picnic lunch and enjoy the many picnic tables and benches.

Visited Wolf Hill today and it took us about 4 hours to walk most of the trails. It's definitely a good work out and I wouldn't recommend visiting on a muggy day like today unless you pack a lot of water!! The trails are beautiful however we came across a lot of unmarked trails which at first were a bit confusing. But as long as you follow the trails that are marked (clearly marked) you are good to go! Mercer's lookout unveiled a beautiful overlook! Lots of little critters running around the forest floor as well! I recommend coming here prepared with snacks and plenty of H20 and expect to spend at least 3 hours hiking!!

Cliff Walk

I love the cliff walk. Anyone can do it. There are multiple places to gain access. You can do as much or as little as you like. And the views are wonderful. Mansions on one side, ocean on the other. How could you go wrong. Personally I prefer to walk in nature rather than on pavement but, this walk is Definitely a must do for anyone visiting Newport.

Outstanding stretch of wilderness in RI. Be careful in the fall and winter as this management area is very popular with hunters for the upland game and deer seasons.

Excellent hike! Trails are well marked. Plenty of old cellar holes and reminders of the farmland that once was. Mid-hike we came across massive ant mounds that may or may not have been active. Be sure to check out Rattlesnake Ledge for great views of Washington County.
