Best place to rough it
Trail rides through the crisp fall air at Stepping Stone Ranch (401-397-3725) in West Greenwich, Rhode Island, are hard to beat. Options start at 30 minutes ($25) but can go as long as three hours ($95). The area features deer, migratory birds, and other critters. After returning to the barn, enjoy a home-cooked meal and beer or wine (bring your own) around the campfire. Call for reservations and to ask about other options.
