Great hike. We did the eight mile loop & missed the orange arrow the first time we attempted the hike & ended up at Pulaski Park. Quite a long walk that day, 15 miles. The second time we did the eight mile loop we paid more attention & saw the orange arrow that brings you back to the start of the hike. The area where you take a right at the orange arrow, is much more challenging. Mostly uphill with a lot of scrambling over rocks. Lots of fun & I highly recommend this hike.

This trail was a beginners trail at best. It was a pleasant walk in the woods. The trail at times seemed more like a dirt road than a trail. The most challenging thing about the hike was trying to follow the mostly unmarked trails. It was a good hike for my 14 year old Grandson and my Golden Retriever. Before tackling this trail, visit the helpful link below and print a map of all the trails for this area. The All Trails Map is ok but there are a maze of interconnecting trails that can easily confuse.

Definitely a really nice spot for biking or hiking. The loop is actually a scenic one way road to drive on, lots of runners and mothers pushing strollers. Trails in the woods were sort of misleading as there weren't many markings but still had a great time just biking through and seeing where i ended up. Probably wouldn't recommend some trails for super beginner bikers as it gets a bit rocky, up and downs, and tons of tree roots, perfect for hikers. I loved it though. Have fun!

As an East Greenwich resident, I have seen the trails used more for horseback riding, running, walking, and hiking more than mountain biking. There are relatively few elevation changes on the trails, particularly around the open fields, making it nice for elders and people looking to get back into shape.

An easy little hike. Just enough to get some time in nature without traveling far at all.

This is one of my favorite places to hike in RI. It is very peaceful and the trails are easy to follow. A great hike to do when the need to be outdoors hits you in the middle of the weekend.
