Sachuest Point National Wildlife Refuge
Occupying a peninsula between the Sakonnet River and Rhode Island sound, the 242 acre Sachuest Point National Wildlife refuge is a very popular site for the over 65,000 annual visitors each year.

The refuge sports a newly renovated visitor center, over 2.5 miles of nature trails, viewing platforms, and a number of Refuge volunteers present to help visitors and to help in management of the refuge.

From saltmarsh and beach strand habitats to upland shrub dominated lands, the refuge supports over 200 bird species.

This one has the added attraction of outstanding panoramic views of the Sakonnet River and the Atlantic Ocean. There are views of nearby Newport, Middletown and Little Compton. There are numerous deer and other wildlife throughout the refuge.

    Though I hoped to meet lots of new people who were originally signed on for the hike, I enjoyed walking and talking with our small group of 11. Great weather and scenery...all totaled, a great afternoon.

    I don't think I will be able to meet up for the walk, so I would like to give someone else the chance to go. I would like to meet for dinner and drinks. What time would that be and where is the meet up spot? Thanks :)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
