The Shortest Hike In Rhode Island Leads To The Most Amazing Natural Wonder

Many of us have taken the scenic cliff walk, visited the mansions, and enjoyed the beaches in Newport. But if you are looking for something a little offbeat to do while in this coastal Rhode Island city, take a short hike to Purgatory Chasm in neighboring Middletown.

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:

Have you ever visited Purgatory Chasm? What did you think? For a whole day trip of beautiful water scenery, take this wine and waterfalls trip through Rhode Island.
