Big Mount Misery Loop

8.56 miles   ★★½ i had so much fun doing the (almost) 8-mile vin gormley trail on monday that i decided to do another 8-miler, this time in the pachaug state forest. well, i found out there’s a big difference between (almost) 8 miles on a flat, well-traveled footpath and 8 1/2 miles on what were […]

Camp Yawgoog & the Narragansett Trail

2:48 miles   ★½ this would have been a beautiful hike, but the weather didn’t cooperate. there was a wet snow clinging to everything, and it made the going slippery and miserable. we ended up aborting it early. i only added the 1/2-star because i wasn’t the one in front. we hope to do this again […]

The Grills

4.6 miles   ★★★★ wow, first time back here in ages. the storm did huge damage here, including taking out a bridge. almost. it was still sorta there, albeit kind of twisted, so i crossed it anyway. ran into a couple of hunters, too. i still really like this property, and it looks like work has […]
