This Easy Fall Hike In Rhode Island Is Under 2 Miles And You’ll Love Every Step You Take

Rhode Island has an abundance of salt marshes and wetlands that are unspoiled natural gems. But most of us know that exploring them during the warmer months means fighting swarms of mosquitoes. Now that the chilly nights of autumn have arrived, the trails are no longer populated by blood-sucking insects and it’s the perfect time to explore some of the areas that are less-than-friendly during the summer months. This easy coastal hike takes under one hour to complete and is worth every step you’ll take.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately.
