This was a nice short mile and a half walk along some very easy paths. There is also the option of some rock scaling here. I started from a parking area just north of Scarborough Beach and I followed the path into the property. Then I immediately took a left onto a fairly new loop path. The path wrapped around an area of thickets and then turned along the the top of bank with some nice ocean views. Just under a half mile the newer loop path turns right and heads back to the parking area. I continued straight onto the older grass path for a bit. After going down a small hill I made my way out the the rocks and spent a little time exploring the area as the waves crashed on the rocks. Both the Point Judith and Beavertail Lights were visible in the distance. I then found my way back to the path and continued southerly until I came across an old stone structure. At this point Scarborough Beach begins. If you wanted to add more distance to this walk you could easily walk the beach. I, however, decided to head back following the grass path back and then turned left on a short path back to the parking area.

I did not find a trail map on-line.
