    Ten Rod Road, Exeter, RI (map)

  • meet in the lot
  • There are several ways to hike this area. We will be doing a 4 mile loop starting at the DEM canoe put in located on Rt. 165.

        From there we will cross Rt. 165 and follow the gravel road to the trail that will take us on the long ascent to the top??? of Mt. Tom.  We will descend the lofty peak and re-cross Rt. 165 where we will be hiking up and along the rocky cliff for some nice views. We will then hike along the Parris Brook and through some pine forest on the return to our cars.

    This is a relatively short hike but with some steep hills and scrambling up rocky terrain I'll have to give this a rating of strenuous. It should take us 2 hours to complete the loop, including crossing Rt. 165 twice.

    Proper dress for the weather conditions including hunter orange(200 sq. inches) will be required. Extra water for hydration and snacks are necessary as well as good hiking boots.

    Hi Michael,
    I didn't get your cancellation and since I was already there, I went up. It wasn't that bad, I found it rather peaceful. ( other than the gun shots going off around me)

    Careful, that summit is a doozy! I will be attempting Guadalupe Mountain, the highest peak in Texas (~8,400'), on Thanksgiving. Thankful for all the great hikes I've had with WRiRI in the past and I am sure in the future!

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
