Tippecansett Trail North

5.25 miles  2.7 mph yes, i just spent the previous post wingeing about my sore legs and my blister and my strained left knee. that does not mean i wasn’t eager to get back out and do it again. this was my first amc meet-up hike, and i had a very nice time. the leader […]

Canonchet Brook Preserve

4.93 miles   2.6 mph it’s been such a long time since i did this hike i’d forgotten what a pretty place this preserve is. that’s not to say i enjoyed the 2+ miles of road walking or the wild, blazed but not well-traveled part in the beginning, but if you plan it so you […]

Narragansett Trail & Camp Yawgoog

4.25 miles   ★★★★½ this is the usual suspects hike we attempted at the end of november. wow, very strenuous. we had an almost bad injury (slip and fall against a rock), but survived. it’s a very beautiful trip, though, and i’d like to do it again. and just a note for those who might be […]

Long Pond

4.62 miles  ★★★★½ whew. if i ever called any of my previous hikes “climby,” i lied—only because i’d never tried this one. i kind of knew it was a strenuous hike, and so i never attempted it solo. but today i went out with the usual suspects, and it was a major workout. i tried […]
