Glen Rock Road, Richmond
A joint effort of the Richmond Rural Land Conservation Trust and the South Kingstown Land Trust, with funding from the Town of South Kingstown, The Nature Conservancy, private donors and charities, Crawley Preserve is a showcase property. There are three well marked and maintained trails on 99 acres which pass through a diverse hardwood forest. Take the yellow trail to the end and make a right on the blue trail. Follow to the end and then take the red trail all the way back to the parking lot.
Length: about 2 miles, with opportunity to extend or shorten your hike
Difficulty: challenging for kids (due to the rugged paths, convoluted trails, and steady incline)
Dogs: are welcome, so long as they are leashed and you clean up after them
You might want to bring: rugged hiking boots or sneakers
Note: Crawley Preserve abuts areas which allow hunting, so fluorescent orange requirements apply for all users during the hunting season (learn more)
