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 […]

Bay Circuit Trail Section 24

10.17 miles; Hanson & Pembroke, MA This was the penultimate section of my BCT hiking, which makes me very sad. This has been a fantastic adventure, and I don’t know what I’m going to do next, although there’s always the “Connecticut 400,” which is actually 825 miles of blue-blazed hiking trail. Hm. Something to think […]

Mushroom Hunt, Hell Hollow

Mushroom Hunt, Hell Hollow

3.9 miles; Voluntown, CT I was pretty desperate to find some mushrooms, particularly Hen-of-the-Woods, before they’re done, so I headed out to an area of the Pachaug where I remembered there has been some logging done recently, thinking that might be a good place to look. It wasn’t the best haul I’ve ever gotten, but […]

Bay Circuit Trail Section 23

7.86 miles; East Bridgewater and Hanson, MA Today I cracked 200 miles on the BCT and yet…sigh. Once again, this section included only a brief, albeit fascinating, hike in the woods and a ton of roads. Also sad because there are only 2 sections left. And what the heck is with this weather? Once again […]

Hodge Pond, “Twin Oaks Farm”

Hodge Pond, “Twin Oaks Farm”

5.06 miles; Voluntown, CT This was supposed to be a mushroom-hunting hike, but there was nary a fungus to be seen except for some old gilled things of questionable edibility. So I also did a little exploring of the old cellar hole complex I call “Twin Oaks Farm” and took a side-trip down to Coal […]

Narragansett Trail, Final Section

Narragansett Trail, Final Section

4.87 miles, Hopkinton, RI This last section hike of the Providence County Hiking Club of the Narragansett Trail consisted of the entire extant Rhode Island part, and went through the Yawgoog Scout Camp. It’s probably also the hardest hike in RI, including as it does the trails around Long and El Ponds in Hopkinton. Kicked […]
