Day 4, 27th N-S Trail Trek

10.3 miles; Coventry and Foster, RI

[Editors Note: Once again I’ve broken my solemn vow to not let unposted hikes accumulate. I wound up almost a full month and 8 hikes behind. Mea culpa. Won’t happen again. I hope.]

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 scenic towns in RI.

Chickens

And why did the chicken cross the road, anyway? This particular RI Red had no comment. Oh, and that rooster right behind her? He menaced me. Cheeky bastard…

Tardis

It’s bigger on the inside you know.

My friend Ernie is convinced that moose are mythical creatures. But why would there be signs of mythical creatures?

Like I said, this goes through some very scenic country.

You can find out more about the North-South trail from this rather old and slightly link-rotty website called HTML Outdoors Planet. There is also some very good info on “The Trek” website. But by far the best guide to the North-South Trail is published by the Great Swamp Press. It is, unfortunately, out of print right now, and essentially unavailable as a used book. It is, however, available from the Rhode Island Library system. As always, click the image above for details about this hike and to download the gps track.
