Big River Management

This morning I found a little known logging road in East Greenwich, RI — Its is part of the Big River Management area and to get to it, you need to drive through a narrow, dirt lane which is rough and abandoned. At the end of the lane is a circle where I parked my car. Beyond it, a single path meanders through the woods. This park is rather big and it is wrapped around both sides of US-95 in the state of Rhode Island.
