In northwest Rhode Island, this extensive management area incorporates George Washington Memorial State Forest and the adjoining Casimir Pulaski Memorial State Park. It holds a color-coded trail system, with the Walkabout Trail and Angell Loop (to an Indian grave) being prized examples. The featured Walkabout Trail leads you through lakeshore, woodland, and wetland settings and offers solitude and wildlife discovery. It gives nod to the aboriginal concept of walking for the sake of walking. The trail’s interlocking colored links allow you to customize hike length.
