George Washington Management Area

7.3 miles; Burrilville and Gloucester, RI This was a PCHC hike which essentially duplicated Leg #2 of our North-South Trail hike, except I was just not feeling it. As a result I opted, since I’ve already done the N-S Trail, to take a road shortcut at the end that cut off about a mile or so of hiking. […]

5.38 miles; East Haddam, CT After a long hiatus, I finally got back to tackling the Connecticut DEEP’s “The Sky’s the Limit Challenge” with my hiking companions Stacy and Dallas the Dog.

Carr Pond Loop, Big River

It’s a massive chunk of open space that was originally taken by the state using eminent domain in order to build a reservoir, and then the reservoir never got made. See this article in the Providence Journal to see how poignant a story it still […]

Bluff Point SP

4.5 miles; Groton, CT Ugh. I haven’t been hiking much lately because, ever since I got back from Arizona, the local trails all seem so… familiar and boring, I guess. But I decided I had to drag my sorry butt out today, and I’m [and I’ll bet you never saw this coming—Ed.] glad I did. I went […]
