Wolf Hill Forest Perserve

Great afternoon hike exploring the trails in Smithfield. The different trails are varied enough that you can walk along a pond, hike up a short but steep scramble, and find yourself surrounded by the hum of high voltage electrical wires. Trees were recently cleared so you can see Providence from Mercer Lookout - great view (warning: beware of a lot of broken glass if you have dogs or kids). We hiked about 4.18 miles out of the entire preserve and found the trail well marked in most places and well maintained.

For a great hike around the preserve, follow Mary Mowry Trail > Harris Farm Loop > World War II Memorial Trail > Mercer Trail > Wolf Hill Trail > Ken Weber Trail and back to Mary Mowry Trail.

This was a great hike. It started out fairly pedestrian from the parking lot with a fair amount of hardscaping, but it got much better very quickly. For the first mile or so you can hear traffic but I don't think it detracts from the trail and scenery.

I did this hike in the winter so there was no one else on the trail, which is always nice, but I can't wait to do it again in the spring. It will be very different I am sure.

My wife & I really enjoyed this trail system & terrain. A well marked trail that's in great shape. We plan to return & explore other routes. So far we've enjoyed the Mary Moury & Ken Weber trails but there's much more to see.

Kool runnings! However, an ammonia like waft hangs around the forest, due perhaps to a farm on the perimeter. An awful reek!

Make sure you get the kind of day where the wind is blowing! Although, this is a cool running trail, many roots and rocks, be aware that there is an ammonia-reek from a barn somewhere on the perimeter of this Forest. Whew, it was an awful reek!

Did this trail twice and saw something new each time. Not a quick hike, it does take a while, but worth it.

This is not Lincoln Woods State Park but a private campground in the town of Glocester. Lincoln Woods SP is a half hour drive away in the town of Lincoln.
