AMC Trail Inspection, Escoheag Trail

2 miles; Exeter, RI

I volunteered with the AMC Narragansett Chapter to do a trail clean-up/inspection on the Escoheag Trail. Three intrepid hikers headed out armed with loppers and a handsaw, and we cleared brush and small trees and documented blowdowns which would require heavier duty equipment and crews to clear. Fun way to spend a morning in the woods, and give back, at least a little, to the organization that makes hiking in the state such a joy.

It was a great day for tromping around in the woods, and a meandering hike with lots of stops and clearing and snipping.

This is the end of our hike, at the parking loop near the hunter’s check station on Escoheag Hill Road. Sadly, we spent about 10 minutes here picking up trash.
