Join the Narragansett Land Conservancy Trust and naturalist Frances Topping for a guided walk through Sunset Farm Trail!
The Town of Narragansett’s Sunset Farm Trail is a 1.5-mile loop trail which is a peaceful stroll through quiet woods. There is even a nice ‘peak’ at Point Judith Pond from a pleasant upland bluff. The trail passes through the only active farm in Narragansett. The 1-1/2-hour tour will be conducted by Frances Topping, a naturalist, artist and educator from Charlestown.
All participants must wear a face covering. Be sure to wear comfortable walking/hiking shoes and bring bug spray. This event is FREE and suitable for all ages.
