Activities & Features


Ninigret Ocean View Trail is an easy hike in the Ninigret National Wildlife Refuge near Providence, Rhode Island. This trail is like a walking through a geology lesson. Hikers can step back in time 15,000 years when the area was covered in thick ice. Along the way expect to see giant boulders that were carried hundreds of miles by the sheet of ice. Once hikers get close to the end of the trail they are greeted with Ninigret Pond.
