This hike takes you out to Rome Point, the most reliable spot on Narragansett Bay for viewing seals between October and May. Terrain on the first leg of this route is a flat pebbled access road straight out to the beach. Then, after some beach walking, you’ll head out to the point through a cedar grove with water views on either side. The return route passes through a wooded marsh past remains of an old farmstead ripe for exploration.
