If you had one hike to do in RI, which would it be? This hike is at the top of the list. While its certainly a humdinger of a hike its worth every step. And yes more than 12 steps will lead to refreshments post hike! This hike has everything one could want with views from the cinematic Long Pond overlook and the sweeping panorama of Yawgoo Pond and Philips Island, a quick search for the always mysterious Symbol Rock, a rock hopping traverse of the famous Narragansett Ravine, a rambling around Green Falls Pond, a visit to Dinosuar Caves (a real cave, who will be brave and/or crazy enough to enter?), and, lastly, a visit to the rarely found Hidden Pond.
Be prepared! Please carry snacks and minimum 2 liters of water. Highly recommended are good broken-in hiking boots, pest repellent that works mainly on bugs, good humor, and sunscreen.
Please courteous with your RSVP, sign up if you plan to attend and, if necessary, cancel early enough so others may attend.
Directions: Turn right just before the entrance to Camp Yawgoo and go 1 mile. Stop well before crossing into CT or you might feel queezy. Park anywhere you can.
We will begin the hike @ 9:30am.
