Sakonnet Greenway Part 1

5.8 miles; Portsmouth and Middletown, RI I’ve had this hike on my “Wanna Hike” list for a long time. It hits a lot of my favorite things about hiking: a long distance, a greenway,  mostly flat… all good stuff. Alas, this was just not my day to hike. I was feeling under the weather and didn’t […]

Rome Point Seal Hike

Rome Point Seal Hike

2.7 miles; Saunderstown, RI Compared to last year’s seal hike, this year’s was a big disappointment, particularly because there were no seals in view today. Oh, well. Also, it was very cold and windy. But still a good group of hikers and friends and a nice way to spend the morning. Despite the cold, these brave little […]

26th Annual N-S Trail Trek, Leg 2

13.8 miles; Charlestown, Richmond, and Exeter, RI Wow. I had forgotten (perhaps mercifully) how rugged the very last few miles of this section are. Painful. But I’m not in as bad shape as I was after Leg 1, so I’m getting stronger. And just in time for Leg 3, which is 17 miles… This hike […]

Narragansett Loop, Francis Carter Preserve

3.36 miles; Charlestown, RI I just love me a new trail! This is the newly-opened lollipop loop on the Francis Carter Preserve that was created on the old United Nuclear* property. It’s a very lovely little trail, and a wonderful addition to the Francis Carter. And I passed it during last week’s N-S Trail Trek. […]

26th Annual N-S Trail Trek, Leg 1

12.3 miles; Charlestown and Wood River Junction, RI So, yeah, decided to give this one another go. I have a free enough calendar that I can attend all 6 legs, and it’d be nice to do the whole thing with Ginny Leslie’s group. This one hurt, though, since I’m not used to mileage like that. […]

Cape San Blas Bike Path & Salinas Park

Cape San Blas Bike Path & Salinas Park

3.37 miles; Cape San Blas, FL This was a nice walk with zero added rattlesnakes. It was actually hot in the bright sun today, and a great day for a walk. And the view from the pier in Salinas Park was a real treat. The bike path is a bike path. I don’t think there’s […]
