4 miles; Hopkinton, RI
Today I finally managed to clear my schedule enough to hike with my “Usual Suspect” friends and Fidget the Corgi. We went on a trip through the Boy Scout camp (probably the last one till Fall), but in a direction we weren’t used to, and it made it seem like a completely different trail. And the weather, which has been so cool, was ideal for hiking. It would have been perfect except for the gnats…
Mmmm…. Blueberries. Of course the birds usually get all the ripe berries from the high bush plants, but a girl can dream, can’t she?
Here are the Usual Suspects and Fidget the Corgi. Hidden Lake is so beautiful, it’s hard to believe it’s really in Rhode Island. It seems more like a wild place in the woods of Maine.
Lots of cool bridges all through here.
It really was a near-perfect hike on near-perfect day.
You can find the map of the Boy Scout Camp online, here. Just beware, it’s one of my pet peeves, but the map is laid out with North to the right of the page, not to the top. I honestly can’t even read maps like this, and whenever possible, I’ll open them up in Photoshop and turn everything around so it’s all going the “right” way. This map would take days worth of work to turn around, however, so you’re on your own.
