3rd Thursday Hike: Biscuit City
Place: Biscuit City Trail
Time: 8:30 am
Join us for our 3rd Thursday hike! December's hike will be at the Biscuit City Trail.
Biscuit City Preserve, SKLT’s handicap accessible site, is historically significant to the Town of South Kingstown. The area dates back to when Native Americans and colonists used it for a water source due to the natural spring that is located on the site. There are also many historic ruins which include the mill foundation, the water wheel pit, the cellar hole to the miller’s house, and a root cellar. SKLT’s most recent improvement to the Preserve is the installation of a six-foot wide, 4 to 6-inch-deep layer of crushed blue stone leading 475 feet from the trail head at Spring Dale Road along the north and west shoreline edges of the half-acre Biscuit City Mill Pond. We are hoping that this area will open possibilities for persons with mobility issues to experience and appreciate an exquisite “pocket” nature reserve featuring varied flora and fauna, including native plants and fungi, a mature hickory, ash, and oak forest, aquatic animals and plants, and an impressive variety of birds.
