There is potentially room to park a car at the trailhead on Red House Road, but it is better to park in the designated parking area along Post Road where there are plenty of spots.

Need to Know

Hikers are encouraged to wear blaze orange during hunting season.

Description

Relatively easy wooded singletrack that is part of the Duval Trail System through a South Kingstown Land Trust open space. Starting from Post Road, follow the signs for the Blue Trail. There is a map at every turn point to keep you oriented, and there is blue paint on the trees as well, making the trail easy to follow. At 0.6 miles from Post Road you have to walk along Gravelly Hill Road for 50 yards while you transition between parcels of land, look for the signs and blue paint on the trees to pick up the next section of trail. At 0.9 miles you come to a scenic overlook where you can see the coast and, on a clear day, Block Island. The trail then descends into a valley and continues to the Red House Road trailhead through several hills and kettles characteristic of the terrain in the area. There is enough vertical change and winding on the trail to keep it interesting, but it is not overly challenging.

Flora & Fauna

Deciduous and evergreen trees, wildflowers, deer, chipmunks, squirrels, birds.
