This is a short and easy hike for all ability levels. Start this Spring Saturday with us in the 27-acre Ken Weber Conservation Area that features the seasonal “Cascade Brook” that produces a pretty little waterfall in the springtime. Along this one-mile loop trail you’ll also enjoy Rhode Island’s oft-seen rock walls from another time, giant boulders, and stately trees. This serene property is maintained by the Smithfield Conservation Commission and was named for and dedicated to the late Ken Weber, known as “Nature’s best friend in Smithfield.” Ken and his wife Bettie laid out the trail.
