Exploring Nature at Emilie Ruecker Wildlife Refuge

Emilie Ruecker Wildlife Refuge - Tiverton, Rhode Island

Emilie Ruecker Wildlife Refuge is an ideal escape in Newport County, Rhode Island. Mike and I stopped here for a hike after a day out in Newport. Tiverton is located about a 25 minute drive away. This beautiful hiking oasis is perfect for a nature walk. There are no steep hills or strenous stretches here, just a peaceful place to get away from it all. We had the entire refuge to ourselves, which made for a quiet, relaxing afternoon.

There are 4 short trails here; we chose to do the Yellow and Blue Trails. There are about 1.5 miles of trails here if you decide to complete them all. Along the way you will be treated to some excellent views of the Sakonnet River.
