Hemlock Ledges

4.6 miles; Exeter, RI Today’s hike was with a group of friends. It’s been quite a while since I hiked this iconic RI trail and I forgot how pretty it is. In fact, I decided that I need to get back to this whole trail system at some point. We had a sunny and warm […]

Hell Hollow Loop

Hell Hollow Loop

7.5 miles; Voluntown and Sterling, CT Mileage hike. Um, perhaps I should explain that… See, I’ve been on Weight Watchers for lo, these many months (since the last week of March). And I’ve found that you can get a lot more flexibility in your weekly points allowance when you do a minimum of one really […]

Wickaboxet and Flintlock Trails

7.5 miles; West Greenwich, RI My weekly “mileage” hike. Came away from this with very bad back pain for some reason. Could be that I got a new daypack. It’s not any heavier than the old one, but it’s a different size; longer. I’ve scheduled a massage, so stay tuned. This is why you have […]

Shelter-Hudson-Breakheart Trails

7.2 miles; Exeter, RI Another “mileage” hike. I had a lot of junk food to make up for this week! I really like this hike a lot; I had forgotten how much. Great weather, too. Back pain was almost non-existent so whatever I did wrong last week I managed to fix. Yay! Don’t know that […]

Cuttyhunk Island

Cuttyhunk Island

3.5 miles; Cuttyhunk Island, MA I will admit to being a lifelong New Englander who has never been to any of the “Islands.” Never been to Nantucket or Martha’s Vineyard, and I always thought of Cuttyhunk as being halfway to Portugal. Turns out, not so much. It was a short ferry ride from New Bedford, […]

Browning Mill Pond

Browning Mill Pond

1.7 miles; Exeter and Richmond, RI Just a short pre-lunch walk with a friend around this pretty little pond. We ambled through the abandoned fish hatchery and stopped to admire the cardinal flowers in bloom. There were also some very attractive joe pye weed plants that seemed to be a smaller variety than the ones […]
