This ambitious see–Arcadia Management Area woodland loop unites several named trails, visiting Breakheart Pond and traversing the rocky ridge of Mount Tom. It begins beside the Wood River, what scientists consider the wildest river in Rhode Island, and swings past its feeding waters. A side trip on the Ben Utter Trail takes you upstream along the Falls River past onetime mill sites and through laurel to the stair-stepped cascades of Stepstone Falls, a winner by any measure.
