After months of training I was finally able to get to the top of Rhode Island. Fortunately my family only lives about 50 minutes away, so this was just a morning side trip during a Thanksgiving week visit.
Traveled here during a mild snowstorm and roads were dicey (almost turned back)! But regardless, park at the side of the road and then walk about 0.1 miles through the woods until you're at the highpoint. You can only see woods from the HP...
Easter Sunday drive - High point marked on road - Box at end of trail to sign log.
This is what it's all about :D
An early morning brisk walk to the summit, for my 25th official high point.
Really enjoyed the drive to get out here. Wish it was more of a hike, but it seemed risky to walk on that road.
Thankfully...I had to tinkle across the road at the top of the small hill and spotted the white sign walking out of the woods. I drove by it several times. Super easy stroll to the highpoint...even took my 76yr old mother
I took a big detour to get this one when driving from Williamstown, MA to Hartford, CT
Rainy day. Actually drove out here from Plymouth, Ma. On a NE trip to see all of the historical sites and talked gf into taking a day to bag it. Went down to Newport, RI afterwards to walk through a mansion called "the breakers", so, she ended up happy..
Exactly like this page says: walk 200 yards to the rock on the well marked path. Cairns and flags make it just that little bit summitlike. State HP#22
After hiking Katahdin the day before, this one was pleasantly uneventful: a minute-long walk down a flat grassy trail. The "summit" was nicely decorated--thanks to whoever set up the cairns and flags. :)
Did the short hike to the summit with my dad, brother, and boyfriend on the drive from Massachusetts from Rhode Island. First highpoint summited with a full cup of coffee
Nice little trail ! A little easier than the one the day before mount mansfield
The summit is pretty close to the road. I did the short hike with my wife and daughters.
Solo trek to the summit. Hiked Katahdin the day before. New England HP #4 on the 6-pack road trip. 1st of 3 HPs on this day.
4th highpoint of trip from CA to Key West via Maine. Arrived just after dark in a light rain, thankful the HP is now on public property and open till 6pm!
Check off one more!!
Been there, done that
After a long day summiting Greylock in MA for sunrise, we jogged in to Jerimoth Hill to get there before sunset and the "closing" of the private property. Snapped a couple pics and jogged back out to get back on the road and head home.
