Block Island National Wildlife Refuge Trail Professional Review and Guide
"A sandy beach road stretching along the dunes of Block Island’s northernmost tip is the major trail within and adjacent to the 127-acre Block Island National Wildlife Refuge. In addition to the always fascinating sights and sounds of the ocean, this hike includes two points of historical interest: Settlers Rock, where the island’s original inhabitants landed with their cattle in April 1661, and North Lighthouse, the fourth lighthouse on this point, built in 1867. Kids will be amazed at the number of birds here: this is an important stopover point for many migratory birds and home to many others, including a number of rare and endangered species."
