This Hidden Spot In Rhode Island Is Unbelievably Beautiful And You’ll Want To Find It
Rhode Island is admittedly a tiny state – so it’s easy to assume you’ve seen all that it has to offer. But even the littlest state holds its share of hidden places, and we’ve found one wildlife refuge in particular that far too few people know about, and we think you should pay it a visit.
The Emilie Ruecker Wildlife Refuge is tucked away on 50 acres of land in Tiverton, and is managed by the Audubon Society of Rhode Island.
It overlooks the Sakonnet River, and there's a great 1.6 mile loop trail that you can walk to admire the views and the stillness of nature.
There are blinds around the refuge for viewing and photographing its wild birds, including Snowy Egrets, Ospreys, Glossy Ibris, and many more.
You never know what gorgeous wildlife you'll encounter, so be sure to bring your camera!
The refuge is beautiful all year round, but it does get buggy in the summer – so fall and winter are actually great times to visit.
A stroll through the trees, perhaps with a stop to sit overlooking the river, will undoubtedly give you a chance to clear your mind and enjoy the power of being in nature.
You can find the Emilie Ruecker Wildlife Refuge at 137 Seapowet Ave., Tiverton, RI 02878.
