Maxwell Mayes Preserve

4.21 miles; coventry, ri

there aren’t too many places i want to hike on saturdays during hunting season. audubon preserves are best, because there is no hunting allowed ever. which really leaves some not bad places in rhode island, max mayes among them. if you do some re-tracing here you can get over 4 miles in. so i did. good, if very cold, day.

saw a new blaze… this blue/yellow/blue one. i’m assuming it’s a crossover trail, probably off the yellow trail, but i never noticed the other end, so i can’t be sure. anyone know?

you can find maxwell mayes in the hikefinder, and i’ve added a new auntie map to that listing.
