Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"You’ll be tempted to check your map as you drive into the campground at the George Washington Management Area. Did you somehow take a wrong turn and end up in Vermont or New Hampshire? Nope, this is indeed Rhode Island, but it’s far from the windswept beaches, sandy soil, and short, scrubby pines and beach roses you might expect of Rhode Island topography. As soon as you enter the campground, you are enshrouded by a canopy of conifers. The tangy pine and balsam scents, mixed in with earthy wisps of wood smoke, make for quite a welcome.

The entire George Washington Management Area and the contiguous Pulaski Memorial State Forest are both densely wooded areas with a gently rolling forest floor. The area is free of really steep hills, uneven terrain, and heavy undergrowth. This makes for many nice places to pitch a tent. Stop to pay your fee at the ranger station as you drive into the campground, and you’re ready to go."
