Coventry Trestle Trail

4.2 miles; Coventry, RI Nice walk through here… probably the quietest and most scenic of the Washington Secondary sections we’ve done. This walk ended a little to the west of Route 102 in Coventry. As I have mentioned in previous posts, the state is working on completing this trail through to the state line, but […]

Coventry Greenway West

2.5 miles; Coventry, RI This was a quick after-work hike… well, for those of us who still work. We had a nice little group for this section of the Washington Secondary. Only 1 more section to go now that’s passable. There are a whole lotta lakes in Coventry, and some very pretty lakeside properties. I […]

Coventry Greenway East

2.86 miles; Coventry, RI A continuation of the Trails & Walks group’s hike of the entire Washington Secondary Bike Path, this section runs through Coventry. Temps for our last section of this, done last December, were in the single digits. Today it was expected that they might hit TRIPLE digits. Ah, New England… Because it […]

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 […]

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 […]

26th Annual N-S Trail Trek, Leg 4

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, […]
