I bought this book shortly before moving to Rhode Island. Now after 2 years and 5 months I have just finished all 40 hikes. I am obsessed with finding new places to explore in Rhode Island and after buying and using nearly all of the books on the subject, there is no better single book than this one. It is easy to follow the described routes and the history and information about the trails makes it so much better than going solo. Although it misses some great other trails in the state, all of the best trails in Rhode Island are listed here. Many of these trails I doubt I will never return to but I was never let down by doing any of these trails, it is just that some are far from my home base of Providence and not as exceptional as others that are closer to me. I am very grateful to this book for showing me these amazing trails: Great Swamp, Vin Gormley, Ell Pond, Pachaug, Moosup River, Walkabout Trail, Fort Nature, Rome Point, and Block Island. It would have been difficult to find and know how to walk these trails without the help of the book. An expansion of the book to maybe 50 or 60 trails is warranted and should include: Snake Den, Quonochontaug, Big River, Beavertail, Fort Wetherill, Norman Bird Sanctuary, Heritage Park, and more urban Providence Parks. The book does not state if dogs are allowed on trials but I took mine on all trails except Audubon preserves, national wildlife refuges, Ell Pond, Lime Rock and Patchaug (too rocky). If I am now in search of a great place to take my dog for a good hike with lots of water, I go to Vin Gormley or Moosup River. I have recommended this book to many and of those that bought it, no one has been let down.
