Hiking trails are an important part of our local quality of life. They offer residents and visitors alike the opportunity to enjoy nature and participate in healthy outdoor activity, and they encourage tourism which helps our local economy thrive. South Kingstown Land Trust maintains seven public hiking trails throughout our town:
- Biscuit City Trail in Kingston
- Browning Woods Trail near South Kingstown’s border with Charlestown
- Crawley Preserve in South Kingstown extending into Richmond
- DuVal Trail in Perryville, including Polly’s Rock Loop Trail and Jones Camp Trail
- Sculpture Trail in Green Hill
- Thewlis Woods Trail in Wakefield
- Weeden Farm Trail in Matunuck
- Yawgoo Trail in West Kingston
Guided walks on these trails are regularly scheduled and announced to our members via email and in our newsletter, Site Lines.
SKLT’s land management staff plans, builds, and maintains the trails for the benefit of everyone in our community and visitors to our town.
