Big Mount Misery Loop

8.56 miles   ★★½ i had so much fun doing the (almost) 8-mile vin gormley trail on monday that i decided to do another 8-miler, this time in the pachaug state forest. well, i found out there’s a big difference between (almost) 8 miles on a flat, well-traveled footpath and 8 1/2 miles on what were […]

High Ledges, Legendwood Rd.

5.84 miles   ★★★★ very strenuous hike. there were places in this trail which required some all fours work (going up) and some butt skootching (going down), and the climbing on the narragansett trail was bad enough, but legendwood road is a mess, and apparently uphill both directions. still pretty amazing scenery. met two ladies who […]

Green Falls Gorge

4.04 miles   ★★★★½ “usual suspects” hike. beautiful day for a beautiful trail. it was dry, cool (it was 46° this morning when i got up!) and sunny. of course, the worst part of the hike was the mile on the road at the end, but in exchange, you get to go hike the gorge. fair enough! […]

Narragansett Trail/Green Fall Gorge

★★★½  3.87 miles did this on april 30, but this time went with a group; the SE-CT adventurers. it seemed shorter this time, but it’s still a very nice hike. it might be worth doing in the opposite direction next time, so the boring road mile isn’t at the end.

Pachaug—Mt. Misery Loop

★★★★  6.77 miles i have just three words to say about this hike: hikes with bathrooms! this is a major plus in my book, and got this walk an extra star. this was a pretty strenuous one, with some rugged elevation changes. lot of (dirt) road walking, too. but it went through some pretty spots, and […]

Narragansett Trail, Green Falls Gorge

★★★★½  4.03 miles wonderful hike. the gorge is very lovely… deep shade among hemlocks, lots of wildflowers, the river… fantastic. hike was typical narragansett trail—climby and hikey. probably 80:20 in total, with the last mile or so on dirt roads. good day in the woods. (is there any other kind?)
