Anne Hoxsie Lane, Narragansett

 

BK010_278x320_cFCF_sqNarragansett’s beaches are known throughout and beyond RI, but there are lots of wonderful natural places to explore as well.

Within the 174-acres of Canonchet Farm, there are both salt and fresh water marshes, an old quarry, and Pettaquamscutt Cove – plus a rich cultural and natural history. In addition, the trail system is well-maintained and the Friends of Canonchet Farm are happy to answer questions and help you out.
