Florence Nature Preserve, Blue-to-White Loop

4.3 miles, 787 ft. total ascent; Gerton, NC This was a difficult hike [for me], as it was entirely uphill for the first 2 miles. Nothing especially steep, except for the first few 10ths of a mile from the parking lot, but still, a lotta work. Beautiful hike, though. No major waterfalls and no views, […]

Richmond Hill Trails

4.2 miles; Asheville, NC I’ve been passing signs for this park for a while and finally decided to go check it out. Nice woodland trails, but after all the recent rain it was a bit muddy. This is a pretty trail system, if not too well marked. They don’t blaze any of the trails, they […]

Bamboozled on Barn Island

4.5 miles   2.7 mph i can’t believe, with the number of times i’ve walked this property, that i somehow missed a turn and got lost. i ended up about a half mile north of my car on palmer road. i think it turned out to be a slight shortcut, because i only managed 4 […]

Browning Farm Trail, South Kingstown

3.05 miles   2.15 mph this is a new (to me) property owned by the south kingstown land trust. it’s a shorter lollipop loop with a spur trail out to worden’s pond and back, which we missed. which was okay, as there was still enough snow on the ground to make you wish you were […]
