The Woodland

 

Distance: 6 miles

Duration: 2.5 hours

Difficulty: STRENUOUS

This hike will not be at the level of the famed Wolf Hill Exercise series but it will be a steady strong pace.

I planned my own route of bi-sectioning the woodland to cut out the section to the right of Pig Hill Road in the Forster loop and some of the lower section of the Coventry loop. This will shorten the hike for a quicker version of the entire Woodland, including all the interesting features of the area.

The terrain is very hilly and rocky and with the temps in the 70's it should be quite the workout. Please only sign on if you are capable of and looking forward to sustaining a steady pace in these conditions. Extra water is a must as well as good hiking boots. Please read and understand the club's liability waiver before signing on to this hike. If you don't feel like you are in good enough shape for this hike then you probably are not and should not sign up for it.

    This hike reminded me of why I've always loved Rhode Island: scenic roads and trails; friendly, relaxed people; and plenty of open space. Thanks, Mike, for the opportunity to de-stress today.

    Really nice secluded woodland hike where the route chosen was made interesting by Leader/Founder Michael. Mike was considerate of the large group & made several rest stops along the way. As promised we managed 6 miles during the 2-1/2 hour excursion.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
