Overview

Blaze orange is required during hunting season. There is a notice posted on the board at the trailhead.
Hop on the Big River 5K to experience one of Rhode Island's best trail running areas! While the route is overall pretty flat, it's still semi-technical, so stay aware and keep your eyes peeled for obstacles.
Features: Birding — Fall Colors — River/Creek — Spring
Dogs: Leashed

Description

Start down the logging road for 0.5 miles, then head into the woods for a rock-and-log-hopping good time! This route utilizes twisty trails with lots of side trails to explore and obstacles to test your mettle on!

This route crosses a number of trail junctions. The way to navigate is thus: Once you turn left off of Burnt Sawmill Road onto singletrack, just keep bearing right at every junction and you'll end up back on Burnt Sawmill Road. From here, take a right on Burnt Sawmill Road and you'll be heading back to the parking lot.
