This trail, which lies on a former railroad bed, is wedged between an industrial area and the Pawtuxet River. It is a short out and back walk on a grassy path that is surrounded by shrubs and some wildflowers. It is a haven for birds in an area that lacks open space. Although the parking area is in Warwick, the walk itself is almost entirely in Cranston. It first passes a cemetery that is the final resting place for people who were in the State Institutions. It then follows the former railroad bed and a set of power lines for about 0.4 miles. It ends near the industrial area on Ross Simons Drive. After returning to the cemetery I found a spur trail leads from the corner of the cemetery to the river.
I did not find a map on-line.
