My very first hike as a Rhode Islander almost 9 years ago was at the Audubon’s Fisherville Brook Wildlife Refuge. My husband and I, pre-kids, loved the wonderful scenery and hiking.

FishervilleWoodedPathFast forward a few years and our kids love it, too! Every time I visit I am wistfully reminded of my introduction to hiking in the Ocean State — and what a great introduction it was.

The 937 acres of Fisherville Brook are loaded with great features such as bridges, a pond, a waterfall, an historic cemetery, a meadow, bird boxes, and more. The easy-to-follow paths and variety of trails and distances are great for kids of all ages.
