I did not find much information on-line (almost nothing at all except minutes from town meetings) for the Johnston Town Forest. It is wedged between Memorial Avenue and Interstate 295 and features two ponds as well as the Pocasset River. The trails have been maintained and blazed by local boy scouts. I decided to follow the main orange blazed trail for a bit following the northeast edge of the first pond. When I came to a path blazed yellow on the right I opted to follow it. This path went around the second pond meandering up and down small hills and going by some areas of ledge. There were other trails that went off to the right along this stretch but I opted to keep the pond to my left making the full loop and returning to the orange trail. From here I retraced my steps back to the trailhead.


I did not find a trail map on-line for this site.
