Narragansett, Rhode Island 02882Sunset Farm Trail website - Explore Rhode Island
The Sunset Farm Trail is normally well-maintained and wide showing the traditional farming uses of much of the trail. There is one new section that will not be as wide and not as well developed. The trail is a 1.5-mile loop trail in the shape of a "lasso," but is generally flat with a few sections of elevation change, but none are steep. There are a few areas with uneven paths. The trailhead is on the far northwest point of the parking lot, next to the gate entering the farm area. If the gate at the entrance is closed you are welcome to open it to use the trail. Please close it behind you once you have gone through the gate.
At the far west section of the trail, there is an overlook over Champlin Cove in Point Judith Pond.
If you come to a locked gate inside the preserve, near the turn onto the loop trail, do not climb over that gate. You've gone too far: retrace your steps about 30 feet and head north on the smaller trail (facing towards the gate, it's a left turn to continue on the trail).
Dogs must be leashed and picked up after at ALL times.
Amenities: There are no restrooms on-site. Kinney Bungalow is available to rent for events. Seasonally, Sunset Farm tenants operate a farm produce market.
Sunset Farm is the oldest and only working farm left in Narragansett at over 150 years. In 1991 the Town of Narragansett bought Sunset Farm and Kinney Bungalow. The Narragansett Land Conservancy Trust took over stewardship of the property. The Farrell family took charge of daily operations of the farm in 1999, and transformed the over 150 acres of farmland into the well-known Rhode Island icon that it is today.
