HI Everyone , .
We will be adding on a section of the Narragansett Trail that most members have not been on . We will meet at the Two Trees Inn and there we will need volunteers to spot cars from the meetup to the trail head at Wyassup Lake (15 minute ride) the start point. We start at Wayssup Lake and head toward Lantern hill .Hopefully we wont get lost on the way . Lantern Hill is actually the beginning of the Narragansett Trail and one of the nicest trails I have been on . With small hills, rock walls a couple of streams and some narrow trails with steep drops it is a great hike . There are plenty of rock outcroppings and a nice view all the way .Did I mention the the dog pound and transfer station . Once on Lantern Hill you will be eye level with the Turkey Vultures and a view of Foxwoods to the North .There are some rough spots but nothing to worry about but you need to be careful .The view is great with Fisher Island N.Y and the Atlantic to the South and rolling hills and valleys East an West . . We then hike down the North side on Lantern Hill Trail following it on the West side out to the point. LOL, it will only take 15 minutes to do this .We will head back on the Narragansett Trail mostly downhill . I am not sure of the mileage but I would estimate to be 5.5 to 6 miles . I would plan on being on the trail for at least 3 hours or more hiking at a moderate pace with hills. Good foot ware is must along with food and water . . Rain will cancel this hike.
