The trail and property is entirely in Little Compton, Rhode Island, however, you must park in Westport and venture your way to the property. The parking area is next to the pond on the north side of Adamsville Road. There is a sign here at the parking area the reads “Additional Parking Grays Daily Grind”. At the back side of the parking area is a post and rail fence with a gate. After passing through the gate you are in Little Compton. Stay to the right here and follow the brushline up a small hill after passing the small structures on the right. At the top of the hill is a sign at the entrance of the preserve. Just beyond the sign a trail appears downhill and to the left that leads to a footbridge that crosses the West Branch of the Westport River. Just after the bridge there is a loop trail that is currently blazed red. The trail itself is a little root bound and can be muddy in spots. At the north end of the loop there is a small clearly for another glimpse of the river. Another highlight of the property is stunningly tall holly tree along the trail. The property is small and the trail is short, but the river and nearby pond make for peaceful stops.
