Knuckup Hill

Knuckup Hill

2 miles; Wrentham, MA This was a PCHC hike, and more of a social gathering than a real hike, although there was a hill, and the view was fantastic. It’s always great to get together with friends, and these are friends I made on the dreaded “social media.” Rather than isolating, I find social media a […]

Barrett Preserve

1.42 miles, Ledyard, CT I decided to do two shorter walks today on properties that were on my “Hikes I’d Like to Do” list. The first was on this Avalonia Land Trust preserve. Avalonia, I love you. I love your properties, and I love what you do. But really? Creating “rabbit-tat” on this little tiny preserve entirely […]

Mamacoke Island

Mamacoke Island

1.89 miles; New London, CT Today’s two hikes could not have been more different. One was a chore, the other a revelation. This is the kind of hike you can take your non-hiking friends on and they will love it. Also there are more trails here that need exploring, so I will be back. Mamacoke Island […]

Nipmuck Trail and the 50-Foot Cliff

Nipmuck Trail and the 50-Foot Cliff

5 miles; Mansfield, CT I did a fair bit of driving today to get to some trails I’d never been on before, but actually ended up retracing a portion of a hike I did a little over 2 years ago. There was an amazing view from atop the “50-Foot Cliff.” Now I have to figure […]

Fisherville Brook

Fisherville Brook

3.1 miles; Exeter, RI So today’s hike was a group hike. See? Not always out there tromping about alone. I really think this property is beautiful… I could wish it were larger, though. Still, perfect day in the woods with new friends. There were lots of these ferns just lighting up sections of the woods. […]

Mount Misery Loop

Mount Misery Loop

6.5 miles; Voluntown, CT It’s been literally 4 1/2 years since I hiked this, and not much has changed about the hike, but a lot has changed about me. Then it was an epic journey. Today, just another great day in the woods. And I got to kinda sorta see the wind farm in western Coventry […]
