We took a walk on the 2.5 mile loop trail on a fine October morning. It was a breathtaking view, with the blue sky and azure sea, black cliffs, yellow and purple wild flowers! We had an exhilarating time, spotted a variety if gulls and ducks and many songbirds on the smaller shrubs on the trail. Unfortunately we didn't know... More

What a wonderful place to visit when in Rhode Island. We enjoyed it tremendously! We were vacationing in November and will most definitely return the next time we are in the area.

This is a very nice place to visit. It gives a totally different perspective of the area. It is so nice and a great place to bring your dog for a quick walk.

Great ocean views on approximately 3 miles of dirt walking paths. I saw deer a mink, a merlin and snails on my 2 morning walks. Very peaceful. The path is very level and elevations are very gentle.

Sachuest Refuge is a hidden gem. It is one of our favorite places. The walking trails offer some of the most spectacular vistas on the east coast. The ranger station is also a great place to gain a very interesting perspective of the park and young visitors will find it fascinating.

Conveniently located near Newport, this refuge offers some great walking. Terrific vistas, plentiful wildlife, and great for bird watching. We go here whenever we are on Aquidnick Island.

If you are in the area please take time to go to Sachuest Point Nationa Refuge. It's a beautiful spot on a hill overlooking the area and you can see the water, the birds and the beaches - and the view of the Bellevue Avenue mansions looking like dollhouses is priceless. You truly are 'the King of the World' at... More

One member of our party is a Master Naturalist and was eager to visit this unique Refuge. We were not disappointed. It is small but deeply significant in understanding the coastal islands habitat.
