Burlingame, North Beach

4.17 miles; charlestown, ri i’ve wanted to visit this spot ever since last may when i saw a facebook post about it on the hiking-in-ri page, but it’s difficult to voluntarily add more mileage to an 8-mile, or 11-1/2-mile hike. so today i made a special trip, and it was worth it. it’s an absolutely beautiful […]
