Big River Exploration

4.27 miles; West Greenwich, RI This hike was a Providence County Hiking Club (PCHC) visit to this state management area on an exploration hike. Even with the best map, the Great Swamp Press map, the trails in here are ever-shifting and unpredictable. We followed a Hiking in RI GPS track for most of it. This […]

Richard H. Goodwin Trail, Part 2

6.72 miles; East Lyme, CT Finally, after nearly a year, I completed the Richard H. Goodwin Trail. This second section literally never left the woods, except to cross 1 paved road. It went mostly through the Nehantic State Forest, then across some private property (Yale Outdoor Education Center), and finally finished at the Darrow Pond […]

Ninigret National Wildlife Refuge

3.8 miles; Charlestown, RI Today’s visit to Ninigret was organized by the “Take-A-Hike” group from Facebook. It was nice to see this gang again, and I had fun, but between yesterday’s and this morning’s hikes, my legs were beat. I plan on taking a little break from hiking in the next few days. It’s time […]

Vin Gormley Trail & North Camp

9.5 miles; Charlestown, RI As has become a recurring theme on this blog, I really felt as though I needed a good bit of mileage today, so besides doing the 8-mile Vin Gormley trail, I added an extra mile and a half by visiting North Camp and the beach there. Foliage was looking pretty good, […]

Hurd State Park

Hurd State Park

4.35 miles; East Hampton, CT So I finished the Bay Circuit Trail. This left me in kind of a funk, and I was just looking through my “Hikes I’d Like to Do” list, and noticed this park. Looked interesting, and it was. But a word of warning: the official map is pretty much useless. Mountain […]

Bay Circuit Trail Section 25

Bay Circuit Trail Section 25

8.95 miles; Pembroke & Duxbury, MA Alas, today was my last ever section of the BCT. It was almost entirely in Duxbury, and it was pretty fantastic. Duxbury managed to thread almost their entire part of the trail through conservation properties, so there was minimal road-walking. This section was a lot of fun, and very […]
