We were in Rhode Island to do the state high point, and I was looking to add on some more fun. I am supposed to be taking it easy due to some hip pain I'm having, so we found a short easy walk to do rather than a hike. What makes this a walk? It was all on roads. Some of them were dirt roads, some paved. We brought our backpacks anyways. The earlier part of this hike is uninteresting. Dirt roads with an occasional house. Once you hit the reservoir it is more scenic. The dogs were a bit frustrated about walking next to the reservoir rather than swimming in it. Definitely not a hike, but just a pleasant very easy walk.

We saw no parking signs on the main road, so we found a spot off the side of Ram Tail Road. From there we turned right onto the main road, then quickly left onto another dirt road.
