Arcadia Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Arcadia Trail in the Arcadia Management Area is maintained by the Rhode Island chapter of the Appalachian Mountain Club and is popular in the summer months with local folks as well as out-of-towners due to the easy and interesting jaunt to the public beach and picnic area. (Even in the fall, though, you are bound to encounter fellow hikers.) Brook crossings, small ponds, and forest strolls will keep children enthused until it is time to dive into Browning Mill Pond. Camping is available within the Arcadia Management Area off Escoheag Hill and Frosty Hollow Roads. Camping is primitive and a permit is required. There is a modest fee for camping. For more information about overnighting in the area, check online before you set out."

I really enjoyed this hike because all the leaves were still budding and could see far. There are also some good fishing spots.
If you are looking for a long family hike that is pretty easy, this is a good one.
