We went here on a Saturday afternoon in November to try and see some Harlequin ducks. The weather was just too nice. Nothing was close to shore, but we did see several interesting sparrows, and a mockingbird. The problem with trying to bird here is...More

Disappointing from a bird watching point of view, but still a lovely, and very easy walk on flat paths. Difficulty level - easy. About 4.5 km (2.7 miles) from the main building, return, doing the ocean view and flint loops. A couple of viewing platforms...More

This is a wonderful place to walk and fill your lungs with the sea air. Bring your camera to capture the magnificent views of wildlife, birds and spectacular ocean views.

We arrived on a blustery October day with dramatic weather on the horizon. Intrepid, we set off along the ocean view trail. Waves crashed on rocks, curtains of blue grey rain drifted over the water in the distance. We got wet, eventually. BRACING! Gorgeous.

I was up in Rhody visiting my sister at college. I was over doing the normal tourist attractions in Rhode Island and the weather was beautiful in Mid-October. We packed a water bottle and headed over to Middletown for an easy walk at Sachuest Point!...More

This is a great place to just unload your thoughts while hiking an ocean front trail. Pack a refresher drink, good shoes, and some sun screen... You will want to take it slow to take it all in.

In some ways, the "best" spot is at Sachuset Point itself, which is between shoreline access points 2 and 4 on the refuge map that you can get at the headquarters or can download online (can't list the URL here due to TA... More

Its open, check on visitors center hours, sure it would be rough going with all the snow, trails aren't cleared. But some good viewing if you're up to it. Skis or snow shoes???
