3rd Thursday Hike: Weeden Farm
Place: Weeden Farm, 17 Matunuck Beach Rd, South Kingstown
Time: 8:30 am
Join us for our 3rd Thursday Hike! June's hike will be on Weeden Farm, which is located on a glacial outwash plain. This easy-to-walk 1.6 mile trail features pastoral views of stone walls and fields actively cultivated for hay and corn.
Visitors also may enjoy views of fields managed for wildlife habitat and a large grove of larch trees. Ample parking can be found next to the South Kingstown Land Trust Barn, site of our annual auction and many other events throughout the year.
This event participates in the RI Great Outdoors Pursuit! This summer-long program helps reconnect children and their families with the great outdoors and to encourage physical activity in Rhode Island’s state parks and natural areas. For more information, visit http://www.dem.ri.gov/greatoutdoors/
