  • A fantastic hike on a wide trail that is predominantly flat because it runs next to the canal. The trail is about 3.85 miles from Plummer's Landing to the mill at the end and is an excellent hike. I have seen gorgeous wildlife (and a few water snakes!) and the area is popular with bikers and those walking their dogs.
  • It's an incredible place. Don't forget to check out the nature trails in the backfield
  • Beautiful place with outstanding staff. It is a sin what the dirt bikers are doing to this state park.
  • Excellent walking path along the Blackstone River, view nature, places to sit, read or soak up some sun! Great venue for photos!
  • Nice flat and smooth walking area along the Blackstone Canal with a great visitors center.
