A long woodland hike with a side trip into a wildlife refuge. This hike runs through the Burlingame Management Area, a 3,100-acre park first opened in 1934, and the Kimball Wildlife Refuge, one of the Audubon Society of Rhode Island’s protected areas. The complete Vin Gormley Trail is an 8.0-mile loop around all of Wautchaug Pond in Burlingame and includes more than 2 miles of walking on paved roads with narrow shoulders. This trip includes a substantial portion of the yellow-blazed Vin Gormley Trail but skips most of the blacktop and tacks on a side ramble into the 29-acre Kimball Wildlife Refuge.
