Connors Farm Conservation Area

2.26 miles; smithfield, ri

connors farm was hike #2 of my day. this was very much a suburban park; for long stretches, it felt like you were walking in people’s back yards. but it was a lot of ups and downs and the geology was fascinating. nice spot.

excellent signage

excellent signage

the signage was excellent. and you know i had to visit the cave trail…



this whole area was filled with giant slabs of sedimentary rock that looked as though it had been all just tumbled together. it made for a lot of cool little “caves.”

i have added this hike to the hikefinder. the trail map that i’ve linked to is from the blog trails and walks in rhode island. the proprietor of that site took a photo of the trail map that is posted at the entrance. in fact, the same excellent little trail map is usefully posted at all the major trail intersections. there are also several entrances to this preserve. i used the connors farm drive entrance.
