Seacuncke Sanctuary is a quiet wooded parcel on the east side of Central Pond with occasional clearings of tall grass. In these small clearing you will notice some rather large ant mounds. The sanctuary itself is in Seekonk and the remainder of the land is actually in East Providence. From the small parking area by the trail head sign follow the narrow trail into the sanctuary. Stay to the left at the split and you will soon notice the first of the ant mounds. The trail to the right leads to the Seekonk Trail and you can return on this trail. After staying to the left look for a wood post on the left of the trail. That is the approximate state line. The entrance trail then comes to an end. The trail to the left dead ends at a point that is suitable for kayak or canoe launching. The trail to the right is the Seekonk Trail and follows the shore of Central Pond for about a half mile (mile out and back). The trail ends at the gully and blue trail intersection of Gammino Pond. There are also some narrower less defined trails along this stretch if you care to explore. The property is rather quiet, very peaceful, and good for bird watching.
