Saugatucket River – South Kingstown

In the heart of Wakefield is a short Riverwalk along the shore of the Saugatucket River. We started this walk from the free parking lot behind the 330 block of Main Street. We then followed the boardwalk along the river toward the dam and waterfall. The walkway then comes out to Main Street. Here we turned right crossing the river and then turning right onto High Street to Saugatucket Park. We then followed the paved path in the park along the opposite shore of the river. We soon came to Sari’s Sanctuary. It is a large wooden covered dock on the shore of the river. It was built in the memory of Sarah McClarnon. From here we crossed the footbridge back over the river to the parking lot.

I did not find a trail map on-line.
