About Doctor John Champlin Glacier Park
The 134-acre Glacier Park is a dramatic example of a recessional moraine glacial landscape, with kettle and kame topography, carved canyons, glacial erratic boulders and the moraine ridge. A number of the kettles are below the groundwater level, forming beautiful ponds. The morainal ridge over looks the glacial outwash plain (86-acre Lathrop Preserve owned by the Audubon Society of Rhode Island), Winnapaug Pond, the Misquamicut barrier beach, Block Island Sound, and the terminal moraine of Block Island and Long Island.

A glacier geologist has reported than having all of these features in an undeveloped site is globally unique.

There are over 2 miles of trails on the property. Some of the trails follow ridges and some follow valleys. There are a few steep trails up the sides of ridges.
