State HP #15, and that's where i'm currently at! It was just a roadside stop, nothing more to say....
in town for a wedding... why not, right?
Yayy, made it without getting shot, LOL!!! As of December 2011, the summit is owned by the State of Rhode Island and has guaranteed access to the highpoint without having to cross private land, accessible daily between 8am-4pm. Nice flat stroll on pine needles. HP #13
En route from Connecticut to Providence, we took Rt. 101 instead of US-6 so we could include the littlest state's highpoint. The "hike" is a very nice stroll through a pine forest, nearly flat, to the summit rock. Even with a recent knee-replacement surgery, my mother-in-law could handle this one!
More of a fun little drive than hike but still rewarding to find this high point and also a state high point letterbox.
13th HP on friday the 13th, I figured I should do a quick little stroll so nothing could possibly go wrong. Nice little forest around the high point.
Stopped by on our way to Maine.
In the area for continuing ed at Yale. Beautiful drive. Thanks to the owners for not shooting at me.
It was a beautiful day out so took a road trip to visit this highpoint. It was a short walk from the trail head.
It was fun. Glad there wasn't any snow or ice.
First time here. The map near Rt. 101 fell over and I almost missed the highpoint; first going to one of the two USGS markers then back to the road. Once back at the road I saw the sign in the grass, realized my error and made the LONG hike back to the real high point. :)
Took a side trip here on the way to Cape Cod with my son. Thanks to the owner's for allowing us on the property.
Short and cute, like Dy.
Nice little stop to kick off my New England trip.
Trying to get my 4yo daughter into hiking. We did a fun one in north central Mass. last year, figured I'd notch a quick HP that could be her first - the brief walk to Jerimoth Hill. Quick and easy, nice ride thru R.I. and Conn. back up to Worcester, MA.
Bob, Broc, Domino and I had a hard time finding just exactly what rock was the highest. But we finally located the mailbox!
This was the closest highpoint to my house so I figured it was a good start on my journey to 50! For posterity it was actually my third highpoint, I did two others before I decided that I wanted to climb all 50 states!!
My wife and I stopped here on our way from a wedding in Newport RI to visit family in Simsbury CT. We spent more time talking to another couple on the trail than we actually did hiking. HP33
Stopped by on way to NH (a visit to Mt Washington...)... Still haven't decided which summit was more difficult. ;-)
