Thompson: Quaddick Pond Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Thompson is the most northeastern town of both the state and the “Quiet Corner,” bordered by neighboring Massachusetts and Rhode Island. This quiet town is notable for a number of natural features, including the 200-million-year-old Wilsonville Fault, created during the breakup of Pangea, and chiefly, Quaddick Pond and State Forest, both located in Quaddick, a small village community of Thompson.
Quaddick Reservoir is a man-made body of water originating with the creation of a dam on the Five Mile River in 1865. The reservoir consists of three sections: Upper, Middle, and Lower. Quaddick State Park is on the Middle Reservoir, on a quiet section of road, and includes a sandy beach and cool, clear water for swimming and human-powered boating."
