This 24-acre property is accessible from the Hopkins Mills Cemetery parking area on the north end of Rams Tail Road. From the cemetery, walk south down the hill east of Rams Tail Road.
A 1/2-mile, yellow-blazed trail starts at the tree line at the bottom of the hill. After about a 1/4 mile, watch for the trail to take a left on a single track up and over a hill.
If you miss this turn, you will be trespassing on Providence Water Supply Board land.
The correct trail will take you to the old McLaughin Bridge (currently a beaver dam!) at the confluence of Dolly Cole Brook and the Ponagansett River. On the way back, don't forget to watch for that right hand turn over the hill to avoid Providence Water Supply Board Land.
This trail an easy double-track walk with one exception being the short single track over the hill; however, this too is easy walking.
