Simmons Mill Pond, a little known RI Management Area. There are no blazed trails here, but Simmons Mill offers miles of lanes and old roads, extensive woodlands, some ponds and open fields. Most of the lanes are flanked by stone walls and towering trees. There is plenty of opportunity to explore here with over 450 acres. However we will only be doing a small area of this management area.

For those of you following the "Weber" book this is hike #37. This is an easy 3 mile loop. Hunting season is back in play, so wear your blaze oragne. This location can be a bit wet at times. I would suggest boots not sneakers. Make sure you bring snacks, water and tick/ bug repellent. Book time for this walk is 2+ hours, however 1.5 hours should be ample.

Directions: This walk is for the main enterance on Coldbrook Rd. Little Compton RI.

Take RI 179 or RI 81 into Adamsville, RI then drive Cold Brook Rd. 1.5 miles SW. to the enterance on the left.
