Self-Guided Plant and Nature Walks

On the Trail

Enjoy descriptions of a few of the wonderful places to walk in Rhode Island with a focus on the plant habitat and then immerse yourself in some of these places.  On the Trail is a feature series in our semiannual publication, WildfloraRI.

In hunting seasons, we highly recommend wearing bright fluorescent colors in the woods. On state lands, you are required to wear 200 square inches (baseball cap) or 500 square inches (vest) of fluorescent orange. Other lands may also allow hunting.  Check before you go.

Additionally protect yourself from the elements and things that bite.
