Bay Circuit Trail Section 7A

| May 30, 2017

6.36 miles; Andover, MA Okay, so I originally planned this as a long 14-mile section, and when I changed my mind and decided to break it in two, I didn’t feel like re-numbering all the rest, hence 7A. This was an interesting section, what with multiple eskers and a cemetery and a kangaroo crossing and […]

A Hike and a History Lesson

A Hike and a History Lesson

5.4 miles; West Greenwich, RI Today’s hike was with the PCHC and a leader I’ve never hiked with before who took us on an exploration of Big River, and even gave us a history lesson, complete with visual aids. It was an excellent hike/talk. For background on Big River, read this Providence Journal article: Kevin Breene’s […]

Bay Circuit Trail Section 6

| May 23, 2017

10.85 miles; North Andover and Andover, MA Today’s hike was by far the best section to date. The Harold Parker State Forest was absolutely beautiful. It reminded me a lot of Arcadia. And that was only the beginning 3 miles or so.  And got my first glimpse of the Boston skyline. And at one point the […]

Narragansett Trail Section 2

3.5 miles; North Stonington, CT This was the second section of the PCHC’s Narragansett Trail traverse (for some background on the trail, see my post about Section 1). We had an absolutely beautiful day, and I FOUND RAMPS! I was so excited and happy about this, but no, I’m not going to say exactly where they […]

Bay Circuit Trail Section 5

| May 16, 2017

10.1 miles; Boxford, Middleton, and North Andover, MA I certainly won’t say this will be a favorite section once I look back on this adventure. Firstly, it was a little heavy on road-walking. Which could have been forgiven, had there not been so darned much water in the trail. I was fording lakes and rivers […]

Block Island, Mohegan Bluffs

Block Island, Mohegan Bluffs

4.25 miles; Block Island, RI This wasn’t a long or grueling hike, but it was lots of fun. Some members of the PCHC and I did a road walk from the ferry landing to Mohegan Bluffs and the Southeast Light. Most of us actually climbed down the stairs to the beach, too. It was overcast, […]
