I completed this hike this morning (5/25/15) with my family. We parked on Plain Rd and hiked up the yellow blazed trail to Falls River Rd (site of the falls), and then returned to Plain Rd using the blue blazed trail, most of which is on an old road. With a little side exploration the total hike was just about 4 miles. This is a relatively easy hike with large sections going along the stream. The falls themselves are very scenic and a great spot to visit. We had a very nice day and even on Memorial Day with good weather it wasn't overly crowded. Excellent hike.

Beautiful New England trail with meandering river throughout. Unfortunately, needs some TLC as trails were not blazed nor maintained. Found myself bushwacking for a time. Should be great in fall

Pachaug Trail around Beach Pond

I wrote a review earlier this month and then went back again on 5/16/15 to complete this loop. Well to make a long story short we did the loop and ended up hiking 13.75 miles. I used GPS and a trail map and still had some issues, not with the Pachaug portion of the trail but more so with the Tippencansett portion. My loop ended up going north of Tippencansett Pond and brought me to Escoheag Hill Rd for a short period and then the water tower and the yellow blazed Tippencansett Trail to head back south. Somehow we lost the trail but eventually got back on after some trail blazing! In any event we had a fun day and I completed my longest hike to date.

Cliff Walk

This is a great paved walk with an ocean view if you come early in the day. The midportion has some large boulders you walk over for about 1/2 mile or so. Certainly an easy hike. It can get very crowded with lots of tourists milling about if you wait too late especially on a weekend. You can park at Easton Beach for free if you come early, but after 8 AM you have to pay to park.

Long Pond Woods Trail

I turned this hike into a 10 mile event this morning (5/23/15). I started at Ashville Pond. To park I turned onto Stubtown Rd from Canonchet Rd and about a half mile on the right (just before the first house on the left) there is a dirt parking lot. I parked there and the yellow blaze is marked on a tree in the lot. The trail up to Long Pond is very nice and enjoyable but not very challenging. I then continued to follow the yellow blazes up along Long Pond. This second portion of the trail, which I followed up to Old Rockville Rd, was much more challenging and a great hike. The total section from Ashville Pond all the way up to Old Rockville Rd was just about 2.8 miles. I then took a left onto Old Rockville Rd (dirt road) and a ways up on the right I saw yellow blazes and turned right and followed this up to the southern tip of Yagoow Pond. I then took a series of red and green trails, ended up just across the border in CT, and went south through some woods after I lost the trail and then east on a Red trail to hook back up with Old Rockville Rd. I then took the same trails back past Long Pond to Ashville Pond and ended the hike about 4 hours after I started. Awesome morning. The section from the bottom of Lond Pond to Old Rockville Rd is the best.

Short hike. Easy to moderate but hard to find the entrance. It is in a neighborhood.
