Duval & Mystery Trails

4.4 miles; South Kingstown, 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.] Instead of doing my usual loop at the end of Duval, I succumbed to “I Wonder Where […]

Duval Trail

5.5 miles; South Kingstown, RI I had the urge for mileage, and a good workout, and I got a bit of both on the Duval Trail. Apparently more than I thought, because I bumped into some guy twice on the trail system and both times he asked me if I was okay. Srsly, dude? I […]

Great Swamp Fight Monument

1.5 miles; South Kingstown, RI I meant to hike Great Swamp Wildlife Management Area today, but by the time I got out of a meeting at URI, it was cold and overcast and I just couldn’t summon any enthusiasm for it. But since I was so close, I decided to see if I could find […]

Browning Woods Plus

3.86 miles; South Kingstown, RI One of my “Usual Suspects” hiking friends broke her ankle a while back. Boy! Could I ever relate. But she’s back hiking again, and we decided to try the mystery trail that shoots off from the Browning Woods trail system. Lo and behold, it’s a Nature Conservancy property with its own […]

Browning Woods Again

3 miles; South Kingstown, RI Coincidentally, I just hiked this property 4 days ago with the PCHC. Today’s group was the Unusual Suspects. It’s still a great little walk, but I could wish it was longer. Next visit I will definitely check out the purported trail to Worden’s Pond. Aside from that, I wondered what […]
