Day 5 27th N-S Trail Trek

13 miles; Foster and Burriville, RI, and Killingly, CT [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. All caught up now!] Alas, once again I won’t be able to do […]

Air Line and SNETT Trails

7.9 miles; Thompson, CT, Burrilville, RI, and Douglas, MA Actually this was me hiking to meet some friends who were doing the Coffeehouse Loop in the Douglas State Forest, but I just had to do more mileage.

Walkabout Trail

8.5 miles; burrillville and glocester, ri if you don’t know the story of the walkabout trail, it’s a good one. from the new england mountain bike association: In 1965, Australian soldiers from the Royal Autralian Navy were stuck in Rhode Island, waiting for their brand new missile destroyer. So how does one amuse 300 soldiers […]
