In Rhode Island the primary hunting seasons typically run from the second Saturday in September to the last day of February and from the third Saturday in April to the last day in May, however this can vary from year to year and depends on what game is being hunted. During hunting season you should wear at least 200 square inches (a hat OR a vest) of blaze orange. During shotgun deer season, which is typically in December, you should wear at least 500 square inches of blaze orange (a hat AND a vest). For more information see the RI DEM website.

The trailhead parking is at 845 East Shore Road in Jamestown, where there is a grass parking area. The trail begins at the entrance, where there are signs. The Mower Trail heads west from here and the other trails branch off at various points. The trail is quiet and there are lots of birds, deer, and other wildlife. During the wet season (December to April) there may be wet areas following rain storms. As of the Fall of 2020 work is underway to improve the trails and complete a loop around the 48-acre parcel.

The mowed main trail was beautiful and well maintained. The North and south loops were a different story. This was my 29th trail in the challenge and I did not go more than a few yards onto what I supposed were either trail. Neither trail had any sort of arrow, medallion, sign or paint bar on trees or posts. Both were not well worn or cared for. Both need a lot of work to get to the standards set by many of the land trust trails.
