Long and Ell Pond Trail Professional Review and Guide

"This section of the Narragansett Trail, which travels through western Rhode Island and part of Connecticut, winds through the 340-acre Long and Ell Ponds Natural Area and rates as one of the most enticing inland walks. Children and adults alike will marvel at Long Pond’s distinctive grove of hemlock trees referred to as “The Cathedral,” its granite cliffs towering 70 feet above the water, and its colony of giant rhododendrons. (If you visit in July, the rhododendron plants will be in bloom.)

A deep ravine joins Long Pond to Ell Pond, a smaller lake surrounded by swamp and a quaking bog. Don’t be misled by this hike’s relatively short distance—rocky ascents and steep drops will have even the fittest children huffing and puffing. Kids should be encouraged to wear proper hiking boots, not slippery sneakers."
