Short but scenic hike on the water! Bring your camera; this is protected deer habitat and they are not afraid of humans.

Careful on the drive in for deer!

From the parking lot head right around the Farm Field Loop Trail then continue to your right down Osprey Point Trail (0.8 miles). This is where you will most likely see the deer up close. Continue to your right to the Osprey Point Overlook, which will (on a clear day) provide you with a beautiful view of South Kingstown Town Beach and Block Island. Turn back and head to your left down Red Maple Swamp Trail (0.6 miles), and continue to your left to complete the Farm Field Loop Trail (0.5 miles) back to the parking lot. If you wanted to add some distance and see Trustom Pond at a new angle, head down the Otter Point Overlook trail!
