Parking/Access Road Notes
Parking/Access Road Notes: Spotted a car by what looks like a dog playground on Buttonwoods Road, near the Richmond Transfer station. No other cars, plenty of room. Other car parked at start of the section, at the Falls River Bridge on what the book calls Austin Farm Road, but other maps call Plain Road. A lot of roads in this part of RI have 2 or 3 names. Plenty of room there, there was one car when we got there around 8:45 but he left right away.

Comments: About a 10 mile section of the NS trail from Buttonwoods Rd to Austin Farm Rd. Light rain/snow early. Cloudy later. Then around the time we got done it was starting to clear. With Snapsquatch and DMW.
