2019 STL#1: Rocky Neck SP

3.1 miles; East Lyme, CT It’s been a tad over 7 years since I last hiked here, and I guess I really didn’t see that much of it the first time because I found a whole ‘nuther set of trails that went over the Amtrak tracks and to a gorgeous old building that fronts the […]

Woody Hill Lollipop Loop

Woody Hill Lollipop Loop

4 miles; Westerly, RI Found a gpx file for this route through Woody Hill on AllTrails. Woody Hill, being a wildlife management area, doesn’t contain what you’d call blazed trails, although, like its much larger cousin Big River, it has become a mountain bike destination. As a result, there is a tangled spider web of […]

Bluff Point, Haley Farm & The G+S Trolley Trail

6.5 miles; Groton, CT This was mostly a revisit to a place I hiked with my friends Stacy and Dallas back in April of 2017. Through this blog I was asked by someone at the Rails to Trails Conservancy if I had any pictures of the trail from that original hike. Turns out I didn’t have any […]

Narragansett Trail Section Exploration

2.44 miles; North Stonington, CT Today’s hike was like deja vu all over again (see Pelloni, Phony Baloney). I had heard through the hiking grapevine that this section, closed since the Spring of 2016, might be re-opened, so I decided to take advantage of yet another lovely February day and go check. Um… not so […]

TriTown Forest Preserve Wapayu Trail, Part 2

4.2 miles; North Stonington, Preston, and Griswold, CT What a surprise! Back here for Part 2 of the Wapayu Trail the very next day! Again, the weather was unexpectedly great, and I wound up more enamored of this trail than I was yesterday. This is a gorgeous hike. Seriously. Do. Not. Miss. When I got back […]

TriTown Forest Preserve Wapayu Trail, Part 1

2.8 miles; North Stonington, Preston, and Griswold, CT The weather was just so beautiful (especially for February!) that I had to get out, and I’m very glad I did. This section of the TriTown Preserve is flat out gorgeous. Strenuous, but gorgeous. I started, again, later than I planned to, so I cut it short, […]
