To me, this is a must-see location. This little "island" has 2 different paths, both about 1.5 miles long each. They are easy walking and include many areas where you can climb down onto the rocks and get near the water. We had a mother deer and a few fawns come out onto the path in front of us (towards...

This is a quiet place to look at the wildlife near the beach. Not many people around so it makes it a wonderful spot to get in touch with nature.

A nice place to walk along the coastline, take pictures and relax. There are benches along the trails to take a break and rest.

This is a beautiful park right on the water with great level walks for all ages. Spectacular views as you walk. Beaches very rocky with beautiful rocks but not great for swimming unless you wear shoes.

You can stop several times on your hike and get different yet wonderful views of the ocean. I have been there a few times and have not seen lots of wildlife. One time the bunnies were out in full force which were great for a young child to view. You can walk or run most trails. Easy hiking and it... More

There are several short trails that course around Narragansett Bay. You can feel the breeze and see a phenomenal view. There are bathrooms on site. Parking is good. Our family loves to get together to walk here.

It's amazing to see something as creative this well. Mother nature has given us, with the friendly staff and walked us through the history, talk to us of how that that land that was once used in so many ways and then turn into something beautiful

We enjoyed a wonderful hike of a little over 3 miles in this Wildlife Refuge. Views of the ocean were great. The trail is well maintained and the terrain is not challenging. We encountered redwing blackbirds, robins, gulls, a comorant or two and a few little rabbits who were quite bold! There was no charge, but donations are accepted.
