Cormier Woods

2.6 miles; Uxbridge and Mendon, MA This was a PCHC hike in my old Mendon/Uxbridge stomping grounds. I had planned to add the Mendon Town Forest to this short hike but it was too damned muggy and hot. I hate this time of year for hiking… Mendon has been a town for a very long […]

STL#2—Cockaponset SF

4.2 miles; Guilford, CT As I mentioned in my earlier post, I’ve decided to try to do the CT DEEP’s Sky’s the Challenge all alone this year :-(. To make the process a little faster, I’ve grouped them together and will do several at once. The first group I picked to do is Group 3 […]

Stubtown-Blue Pond Loop

Stubtown-Blue Pond Loop

6.27 miles; Hopkinton, RI This was a brutal loop hike that included Long/Ell Ponds. That trail is seriously relentless with its UPS and its DOWNS and its rocks and boulders. After all that I just couldn’t finish on the Narragansett Trail, so we decided to visit Blue Pond instead. I’ve hiked all the portions of […]

Millville Lock to Blackstone Gorge

Millville Lock to Blackstone Gorge

5.1 miles; Millville and Blackstone, MA Today’s first hike today was so short I decided to extend it by adding this excursion on the SNETT (Southern New England Trunkline Trail) to visit the Millville Lock, the Triad Bridges, and the Blackstone Gorge. An intrepid pair of hikers from the first hike, Rita and Jim, joined […]
