PCHC North-South Trail, Leg 1

PCHC North-South Trail, Leg 1

6.8 miles; douglas, ma and pascoag, ri

i never managed to finish the great north-south trail trek, either year i started it, so i’ve never been on this leg of the trail. the providence county hiking club has broken the trail into more and smaller legs than the “great north-south trail trek” people, and just to be contrarians, i guess, we’re starting at the northern terminus rather than the southern end.

wow, this stretch of the north-south trail south of the state line is rugged. there were lots of boulder fields. we had a great day for it, though, sunny and warm. and my knee felt great… for the first mile. by mile 3, though, it was really painful. nothing to do but suck it up and keep going—which i did.

one of our members really loves ledge climbing. here he is on a huge one.

i have not added this hike to my hikefinder. you can find info on the north-south trail here.
