What are the best kid-friendly hikes around Rhode Island?
There are lots of kid-friendly hikes around the state of Rhode Island if you know where to look. While it may be a small state, Rhode Island’s size doesn’t impact the number or quality of kid-friendly hikes in the state. Here are some of the best:
Mowry Conservation Area Red Trail
In Smithfield, Rhode Island, you can find this loop that is just under a mile and is perfect for kids. If you are looking for an easy walk to take without much preparation head on over to the Mowry Conservation Area for a quick escape into the Rhode Island forest on a well marked trail.
Rome Point Trail
Rome Point Trail is another kid-friendly hike, but this one is a bit longer. Clocking in at almost. 2.5 miles, this flat loop trail will take you out on a sandbar past Bissel Cove, where you will be surrounded by the water as you complete your loop on this tiny peninsula. This hike is guaranteed to be a fun time for everyone.
Fort Barton/Sin and Flesh Brook Trail
Fort Barton/Sin and Flesh Brook Trail is a flat 2.1-mile loop near Tiverton, Rhode Island that is also perfect for the whole family. This hike will bring you to a lookout station where you can look out over the Rhode Island forest and coastline, and past rivers and footbridges that you will all love. Dogs are also welcome on this hike but must be kept on a leash.
Jerimoth Hill is a very short hike, that usually takes under 10 minutes but it has a special feature. The top of Jerimoth Hill is actually the high point on Rhode Island! However, don’t worry about a lot of walking uphill. At 840 feet above sea level, and with the parking lot so close. The trail is basically completely flat to get to the top of Rhode Island!
