A mostly flat loop trail with two options for shorter loops. The George Washington Management Area, which includes the George Washington Memorial State Forest and the Casimir Pulaski Memorial State Park, is a peaceful 3,489-acre oasis in the quiet northwest corner of Rhode Island. Here deciduous and hemlock forest, white cedar swamp, marshland, the Bowdish Reservoir, and numerous ponds provide habitats for many species of wildlife. Warblers, thrushes, hawks, and owls thrive, and resident otters can be spotted in winter scrambling across the ice of the reservoir.
