Pachaug Trail Is A Challenging Hike In Rhode Island That Will Make Your Stomach Drop

Seeing as Rhode Island is a largely flat state, you might think our hiking trails are all easy due to the lack of elevation gains. But the Ocean State definitely does have some hikes that are surprisingly challenging, mostly due to their length. The The Pachaug Trail, for example, spans a whopping 24 miles, although a much more manageable 7.4-mile stretch is located in Rhode Island (the rest is in Connecticut). If you’re up for a long, fun day, check it out.

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. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
