A great place to walk with a view of the Atlantic and the Sakonnet River, just about anytime of the day. Love going there after dinner to see the deer feeding and the sunset.

I walk this about three times a week. If I get there early enough, the deer come to wish me a good morning. After the remnants of the tropical storm Hermaine, I could witness the powerful waves crashing to shore from the different designated lookouts....More

A beautiful 3 mile walk through abundant wildflowers and shrubbery, lots of ocean views, and a great rocky shore. Many songbirds, shorebirds, and the occasional deer. A wonderful walk. Visitors center is also interesting.

Its open, check on visitors center hours, sure it would be rough going with all the snow, trails aren't cleared. But some good viewing if you're up to it. Skis or snow shoes???
