The King Preserve

The Nature Conservancy is a global environmental nonprofit working to create a world where people and nature can thrive. We join with partners to protect Rhode Island’s special places, restore its rivers and coastal waters, and connect people with nature. Current projects include farm and forest protection, reducing polluted stormwater runoff, improving fish habitat in Narragansett Bay, and building broad community support for climate action.

The King Preserve offers three miles of wooded trails, framed by stone walls and historic cart paths, sloping gently toward the Narrow River. Cool streams meander through the preserve, which was once a Girl Scouts camp. Today, it’s named for Dave King, who was a leader in efforts to protect Rhode Island’s open space for everyone to enjoy. At its South border, The King Preserve’s Blue Trail connects to the Casey Farm trail system. Please see The King Preserve Trail map below, and Casey Farm’s trail map near the top of this page or on the Welcome page.
