Green Fall Gorge and Narragansett Trail

4.2 miles; Voluntown, CT Haven’t been on this trail since the drunk hunters way back when, and I missed it. Glad to be back. This is an even better look at the newly-installed boardwalk along a particularly treacherous section of the trail along the side of the ravine. I especially like the log ladder leading […]

Hell Hollow Loop

Hell Hollow Loop

7.5 miles; Voluntown and Sterling, CT Mileage hike. Um, perhaps I should explain that… See, I’ve been on Weight Watchers for lo, these many months (since the last week of March). And I’ve found that you can get a lot more flexibility in your weekly points allowance when you do a minimum of one really […]

Three 2019 Sky's the Limit Hikes

4.65 miles; Sprague, Hampton, and Voluntown, CT Can’t really call them all hikes, and I didn’t even bother to record the gps track for one of them. But I got all my selfies [Ed. Note: not so much], so that makes 6 down, with 4 to go for the certificate, and 8 to go for […]

Green Fall Gorge

3.8 miles; Voluntown, CT This hike was mostly to check out the new bridge installed by the CFPA. I expected it to go across the Green Fall River, but I was wrong; instead, it makes a particularly tough section of the trail along the eastern side of the river much less treacherous. I also ran […]

Mushroom Hunt, Hell Hollow

Mushroom Hunt, Hell Hollow

3.9 miles; Voluntown, CT I was pretty desperate to find some mushrooms, particularly Hen-of-the-Woods, before they’re done, so I headed out to an area of the Pachaug where I remembered there has been some logging done recently, thinking that might be a good place to look. It wasn’t the best haul I’ve ever gotten, but […]

Hodge Pond, “Twin Oaks Farm”

Hodge Pond, “Twin Oaks Farm”

5.06 miles; Voluntown, CT This was supposed to be a mushroom-hunting hike, but there was nary a fungus to be seen except for some old gilled things of questionable edibility. So I also did a little exploring of the old cellar hole complex I call “Twin Oaks Farm” and took a side-trip down to Coal […]
