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.
First time in Rhode Island. Why do they call it an "island?" I've enjoyed all of the flat-land highpoints I've tagged so far. This is a unique hobby!
Took 10 minutes....
Almost passed by it coming from the CT side. You can do this one in flip flops if you want. Still harder than Ebright Azimuth, Campbell Hill, and Hoosier Hill.
I was on my way to Katahdin and this was a good time to get #7 done. Nice little stroll.
Nice stroll in the woods for highpoint number 5!
Nothing much, actually not a bad little walk to stretch our legs on the way from Acadia to CT.
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.
