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 […]

What a Difference a Week Makes—Duval Trail

3.6 miles   2.3 mph whew, much warmer this week. it was 47, not 7, when i got up this morning. unfortunately, there was still a lot of ice on the trail itself, which was also awash in meltwalter, making for a very tricky hike. and muddy; my pants were black from the knees down! […]

DuVal Trail

★★★★  5.38 miles wednesday hike with the usual master gardener suspects. wow, who knew south kingstown was so mountainous! don’t let this bucolic trailhead fool you, this hike was climby, climby, climby! beautiful open woodlands, great view of block island (from one of the higher points), about 80:20, hikey:walkey. the weather was glorious.

Trustom Pond Wildlife Refuge

★★★★½ very similar to ninigret, but without the cool history of having once been a naval air station. fewer miles of trails, too. but very nice. 100% walkey. no climby. just what i needed after yesterday!   since i won’t be going out tomorrow (lunch and a movie with a friend), this means i’m done.
