It’s Impossible Not To Love This Breathtaking Wild Flower Trail In Rhode Island
Rhode Island’s absolutely gorgeous in all seasons, something on which we can all probably agree. That makes hiking the ideal activity all year around, especially if we enjoy the changing scenery – from the landscape sprinkled in snow to painted in glorious fall colors. This wild flower trail in Rhode Island promises beauty all year around, but it’s particularly striking in the warmer months when the flowers are in bloom.
You may have already hiked the Cumberland Monastery Trail; it is, after all, a popular trail that draws hikers, bikers, and runners with its somewhat challenging terrain.
However, if you've never followed this picturesque path when the wildflowers are blooming, you're in for a real treat.
The trail scores a moderate rating from All Trails, although it all depends on your experience and skill level as a hiker. It is a popular trail for hikers with dogs.
Meandering just over three miles, the popular trail can get pretty busy. If you're looking for solitude, you'll probably want to pick another hike.
Feel as though you're deep in the forest on the path that's flanked by trees. You shouldn't have much trouble spotting the wildflowers either.
The trail has some inclines, but hikers report it's predominately flat. However, keep an eye out for downed trees, roots jutting out of the ground, and some rocky terrain.
You'll definitely want to lather on the bug spray, and bring some along, too. Hikers warn that the trail has a lot of bugs.
On the up side, you might also get to see local wildlife, including deer and ducks floating in the pond you'll pass.
