About East Greenwich Nature and Cross Country Trail
Once the land of the McHale Sand And Gravel Company, this property today is home to the cross country course for the high school and is open to the general public. Opening in August of 2016 it has quickly become a favorite walking spot for locals. The path here starts at the cul-de-sac at the end of Avenger Drive just beyond the high school and athletic fields. The stone dust path first winds through a small open area before passing through a wooded area along Fry Brook. The path then comes to the loop. Two times around the loop would give you the distance required for the track team. For this hike I went around the loop once. It weaves through the property slightly up and over small hills as it passes through small fields. The path is lined with trees and small shrubs that serves as a haven for birds.
