Day 5 27th N-S Trail Trek

13 miles; Foster and Burriville, RI, and Killingly, CT Alas, once again I won’t be able to do the last section in two weeks, so today’s hike concluded my version of the 27th Trek. It did include Ginny “Queen of the North South Trail” Leslie’s commemorative post and my favorite view on the whole trail, […]

Day 4, 27th N-S Trail Trek

10.3 miles; Coventry and Foster, RI Not my favorite of all the legs on this trail, but still a lot of fun walking with friends. And it goes through Ginny “Queen of the North South Trail” Leslie’s favorite spot, Rice City.  This entire section is road-walking. Good thing it goes through some of the most […]

Day 2.5 27th N-S Trail Trek

9.5 miles; West Greenwich and Coventry, RI and Sterling, CT I called this Day 2.5 because it’s the dreaded Day 3 18-mile section, and I just didn’t feel up to 18 miles. Instead, I met my pals Mel and Bob at Pinetop and hiked the last 9+ miles with them. The detour wasn’t as bad […]

Day 1 27th N-S Trail Trek

12.1 miles; Charlestown and Richmond, RI I wasn’t sure until almost the last minute whether I’d do this again. I will miss Day 4 and Day 6 this year due to prior commitments. Alas, no completion patch for me this year… This hike was harder than I expected, even with the aggressive neighborhood walking I […]

26th Annual N-S Trail Trek, Leg 5

13.4 miles; Foster and Gloucester, RI and Killingly, CT After the 17-mile leg, then the “easy-peasy” 10.1 miler, this didn’t seem as if it would be very difficult at all. Well, a 13-mile hike is still a long-assed hike, and I haven’t been spending hardly any time hiking recently. Long story short, I was really […]

26th Annual N-S Trail Trek, Leg 4

10.1 miles; Coventry and Foster, RI After the last grueling leg, this leg seemed easy-peasy—all road walking and “ONLY” 10+ miles. We (for a change) had a glorious day, if not super warm, with sunshine and blue skies the whole time. This is a beautiful part of the state, which made the road-walking downright pleasant, […]
