I discovered this on a bike ride, and came back with my wife to walk the trails. Superior ocean views from quiet trails. Well maintained trails at that. The visitor center is impressive with a wealth of information about the salt marshes and how important they are. If in the area, this is a must-do stop. Take a couple hours... More

Trails of varying length overlooking the water provide the opportunity to view birds and flowers. Ranger station has restrooms, information about the sanctuary and a ranger to answer questions.

Sachuest Point National Wildlife Refuge in Middletown, Rhode Island is a beautiful rocky point jutting out into the Atlantic Ocean. If you are in Newport, Rhode Island to tour the Victorian era mansion museums or to go to the beaches, take 2 hours and drive 15 minutes west down the coast to Middletown to check this place out. There is... More

Great place for a short outdoor hike. Ocean breezes are the best for re-energizing. The trail is short and pretty level so don't be intimidated if you aren't an aggressive hiker....just beautiful'

Choice of trails, well marked and gives trail length, To the right is more open ocean, less cover. To the left, low trees and bushes more cover for animals and... More

This is a spectacular way to have some quiet time away from the crowds. Walk, jog, sit, reflect, and absorb the surf and the clouds of birds going about their business. The quieter you are, the more you will appreciate it as you listen to the sonic treats of nature. The trails are flat and easy. You will want to... More

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...
