The Ram Tail Trail is on the Foster Land Trust Hopkins Property just south of the Hopkins Mills Cemetery off of Route 6. The half mile yellow blazed trail weaves through heavily wooded groves to the confluence of the Ponagansett River and Dolly Cole Brook (named after the famed “Witch of Foster” who still haunts the woods in this area). The point, with a beaver dam, is quite picturesque with an abundance of flowers. At the time of this hike a great blue heron was observed. Dolly Cole, however, was not!! From the point retrace your steps back to the parking area. Be sure to follow the yellow blazes as there is no trespassing on the abutting Water Supply Board property.
