Birdwatch at Sachuest Point

Rate this Adventure 1.5 miles  - Loop Trail

Added by Erin Hall

Beautiful sunrises and plentiful wildlife

A trip to Aquidneck Island would not be complete without a quick walk around Sachuest Point. I highly recommend this hike at sunrise, but any time of the day (or year) is great! This nature preserve is home to a large population of tourist-friendly deer, and is visited every winter by at least two snowy owls. I highly recommend the Ocean View Loop (1.5 miles) - this is a great spot for amateur nature photographers to practice!
