The Nature Conservancy in Rhode Island just opened hiking trails in Little Compton (Dundery Brook) and Exeter (Cuttyhunk Brook), which brings our statewide total to 60 miles of trails open to the public.
Thanks to our new friends at Everytrail.com, you can take our trail maps and descriptions with you on your smart phone. The EveryTrail app is free and very easy to use and compatible with iPhone and Android devices. Not only will the app help you find the closest TNC preserve, its GPS functionality allows you to follow along as you hike, and lets you know that you’re still on the right track. The new app provides photos and an overview of each trail and gives you a few points of interest to look for along the way. We’ll keep adding new Conservancy trails, so check the app or Everytrail.com often for updates. We’re excited to offer this new tool and hope it will make it even easier for Rhode Islanders to enjoy nature and experience all the wonders that our preserves hold.
We take pride in knowing there is a Nature Conservancy trail within 10 miles of everyone in the state and these walking paths have never been more accessible. If you are interested in a longer hike, you might like the Carter Preserve in Charlestown, Tillinghast Preserve in West Greenwich, and our numerous trails on Block Island. Other walking paths include: Lime Rock in Lincoln; Beaver River and Grass Pond in Richmond; Cuttyhunk Brook and Queens River in Exeter; Canonchet Brook in Hopkinton; and Dundery Brook and PT Marvell/Goosewing Beach in Little Compton.
