Most people who have spent time in Arcadia would probably agree that this is Rhode Island’s premiere nature area. It’s difficult to argue otherwise, if only in size alone. With over 14,000 acres in area, it’s the largest open space in Rhode Island. And being contiguous with Pachaug State Forest on the west in Connecticut, with over 33,000 acres; and with W. Alton Jones Preserve (not open to the public) to the north, with over 2300 acres, these three combined areas create one the largest undeveloped areas along the East Coast of the United States, as night photos looking down from space show. In Arcadia you’ll find a great variety of natural landscapes and natural features, including extensive hardwood forests and pine forests, as well as hills and valleys, ledges, rocks and boulders beyond counting, fields, lakes, ponds, and streams of all sizes, all sorts and sizes of wetlands, and so much more. With miles of trails for you to follow, you’re guaranteed an opportunity at practically every turn you make, to enjoy all the fine natural features that Arcadia has in abundance to offer. This fine map will help you explore a truly remarkable place.
