Bates Loop Trail, Tillinghast

3.5 miles; west greenwich, ri merry christmas to all my readers, by the way. i hope it was just as good as your expectations. hm, that could be either good or bad, actually… this is both a new and new-to-me trail at tillinghast. very pretty. it goes through some interesting spots, including the old bates homestead […]
