Lots of deer

Visited here in January. Saw a total of 13 deer. You can get quite clos to them. It's a very nice walk. Did not see any Artic White or snow owls this trip, but did last year.

Stone dust trail wide enough to walk side by side with views of rocky coast and open ocean on the entire outer loop trail. A cut through in the middle lets you shorten the three miles. Their is access to the rocky coast for exploring and or fishing. The open meadows provide ample bird watching and wildflower viewing. The visitors... More

We visited the refuge on two wonderfully warm days in late November and enjoyed walking on the trails along the seashore, The fresh salt air and the seascape vistas made the 1.5 mile loop very enjoyable. We took the loop to the point the first day and the loop on the bay side the second day. Both loops had unique... More

We took a walk on the 2.5 mile loop trail on a fine October morning. It was a breathtaking view, with the blue sky and azure sea, black cliffs, yellow and purple wild flowers! We had an exhilarating time, spotted a variety if gulls and ducks and many songbirds on the smaller shrubs on the trail. Unfortunately we didn't know... More

What a wonderful place to visit when in Rhode Island. We enjoyed it tremendously! We were vacationing in November and will most definitely return the next time we are in the area.

This is a very nice place to visit. It gives a totally different perspective of the area. It is so nice and a great place to bring your dog for a quick walk.

Great ocean views on approximately 3 miles of dirt walking paths. I saw deer a mink, a merlin and snails on my 2 morning walks. Very peaceful. The path is very level and elevations are very gentle.

Sachuest Refuge is a hidden gem. It is one of our favorite places. The walking trails offer some of the most spectacular vistas on the east coast. The ranger station is also a great place to gain a very interesting perspective of the park and young visitors will find it fascinating.

Conveniently located near Newport, this refuge offers some great walking. Terrific vistas, plentiful wildlife, and great for bird watching. We go here whenever we are on Aquidnick Island.

If you are in the area please take time to go to Sachuest Point Nationa Refuge. It's a beautiful spot on a hill overlooking the area and you can see the water, the birds and the beaches - and the view of the Bellevue Avenue mansions looking like dollhouses is priceless. You truly are 'the King of the World' at... More
