Nature Trails

Map of Rhode IslandFor such a tiny state, Rhode Island's environment couldn't be more diverse and its people couldn't be more dedicated to preserving the state's natural heritage. The ocean state is brimming with natural beauty, featuring thousands of acres dedicated to wildlife refuges, more than 400 miles of coastline and more than 100 public and private beaches, scores of easily accessible public gardens and much more.

With so much to offer, we developed Rhode Island Nature Trails to help you discover the natural gems located in every corner of our state. Whether you are looking for bird watching or hiking, each section details some of the best spots to visit in the Ocean State. Each trail also features additional information about each topic, from “off trail” detours and important information to local food favorites that you can't miss.

Get ready to make your vacation memories on the Rhode Island Nature Trails.
