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. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
