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.

well I'm not sure about the in and back trail but we did the VIN Gormley trail and it went all the way around the pond. at first it's very hard to find the trail but you can start anywhere and then go all the way around it is some roads but not a lot.all in all a nice trail. not real great in the winter though, nothing really to look in the woods. but I'm glad I did it.

Arcadia Trail

We couldn't find the trail head for the Arcadia trail, so we went around the pond, up a road and we found it! the trails are very well marked, but with out a map you really don't know where you are going. I looked all over for a map! thought I would find one on this site. disappointed on that. But it was a nice day.

An old favorite has been made new with the addition and marking of the Blue Loop. It officially links Wickaboxet to Tillinghast, guides us through old farmstead we may have missed earlier, and doesn't forget the well-loved Rattlesnake Ledge and ant mounds. Put it on your revisit list!

Great Swamp Management Area

I disagree with the trail Overview regarding mountain biking. We have hiked the trails around the Great Swamp dozens of times and rarely have seen a biker. The dirt road trails are quiet and easy to follow, and you can do various loops from 3 miles to 7+ miles depending on how much time you have. The longest loop will take you to an old seaplane dock on the edge of Worden's Pond, then around the no-name L shaped pond inside of the swamp. If you enjoy ospreys, there are multiple nests on that pond (this year 4 or 5 nests, maybe up to 10 birds) during their season here from April to Sept. It's also a nice place to bring dogs, but as someone mentioned earlier it is a State Management area and hunting is in season for much of the year. Keep your dog leashed and wear your blaze orange vest/hat/jacket/whatever. Link to area map: http://www.dem.ri.gov/maps/mapfile/wma/map14a.pdf

Walkabout Trail
by

1 Completed 1 Reviews

I usually run the trails and attempted to run the 8 mile one at walkabout. Quite challenging and loaded with all kinds of terrain. Found my head looking down most of the time dodging lots of obstacles, this causes some wandering at times because I miss some markers. I traversed it in about an hour and forty minutes but I did miss alot of the view in the process. You will get quite a workout but not much in elevation here. enjoy
