This Audubon Society of Rhode Island woodland and wildlife refuge holds rich hardwood forest, moist bottomland, peaceful brooks, and early American history. On its grounds, old foundations, stone walls, quarry sites, and inexplicable cairns harken to the past. As legend has it, the site’s Biscuit Hill traces its name to the Revolutionary War, when a food wagon of biscuits overturned en route to General Rochambeau’s troops. The Paul Cook and Milton A. Gowdey Memorial Trails, two loops stitched by a connecting trail, travel the site’s Coventry and Foster Tracts.
