Hike Rome Point North Kingstown

We will be Hiking the many trails at Rome Point. Most are flat, but there is a nice Hill which should be good for the Cardio. Sorry but there are no Brambles and if you do not want to climb the Hill there is another way around it. The Hike also Features a Seal Watch, so bring your Binoculars. I will bring my small Telescope. To find out more about the Seals go to
http://www.romepoints... The Weather looks nice for Saturday. FYI I am still Hiking even if it snows Wed. Directions: 95 South / Route 4 South / Route 1 South / Route 138 East Heading to Jamestown / Take the 1 A Wickford / Narragansett exit / Left at the end of exit / Parking lot is ONE MILE down on the Right. NOTE The Parking Lot DOES NOT say Rome Point.

    I uploaded some shots of the harbour seals from San Simeon State Beach in California just for the sake of "that's what one looks like up close".

    If anyone is interested, Microspikes can be purchased from Blackstone Valley Outfitters (www.bvori.com) for 49.99. Less than REI or EMS!

    This is a beautiful location, with a number of smaller trails off the main path. Plus, there are seals offshore in the winter!

    To those who asked me about my Micro Spikes, here is their Web Site. http://www.kahtoola.com/microspikes.php I got them at EMS in Garden City Cranston. REI also carries them. I would call first to see if they had any.

    I want to Thank everyone for joining me on my First Hike as an assistant Organizer. It was an enjoyable Hike in the Middle of Winter. Rome Point is a nice Casual Place to Hike. There is one Hill to add some fun. The Beaches are nice too. Lets not forget the Seals.

    Great hike and time. Perfect pace which allowed people to stop at times and catch up easily. had fun withthe Geo-Caches. Just gotta look out for those pesky vines begging to be climbed and bridges to . . . ?.

    I had a really good time. Great people to hike with.

    February 13, 2010

  • Rodney

    A great place to walk and ramble with lots of trails and lots of things to do along the way. Good company as usual once I found you all again.

    See you then Barb. 8:30 means leave house at 7:50. <----- Mental note.

    Hi Barb, I live in the Buttonwoods section of Warwick. It takes me 30 - 40 minutes to get there. Once you get on the highway it is clear sailing all the way.

    February 11, 2010

  • barb y.

    I have not driven to seal point before. Do you think 8:30 will give enough time?
    Usual place is the Stop & Shop at the Rt 5 East exit off 95 at Warwick for others if interested in carpooling. You can see the sign from the highway.

    I cross-country skied there today. There was only 3 or 4 inches of snow on the ground. The trails were already mostly packed down. Hiking boots, preferably waterproof, will be fine.

    Hi Rodney, I am wearing my 8" Hiking Boots. After 2 days of melting and settling, add to that the locals walking around, everything should be fine. The Weather looks Sunny, with Temps in the 30 's. See you there. ps The Beach where the Seals are is in the Sun.

    February 11, 2010

  • Doug

    The amount of snowfall is very localized Rodney. I'm guessing they received around 6" at Rome Point. It might not be a bad idea to bring your Sorel's.

    February 11, 2010

  • Rodney

    Storm didn't generate a lot of snow up my way, how's it looking down in RI? Will regular foot ware suffice or do I need skis/snowshoes/snowkat?

    February 11, 2010

  • michael

    I will use this as a free day for me to go out and explore a new trail for a possible future hike for the group.

    February 10, 2010

  • Doug

    Hmmm... Maybe I'll bring my cross-country skis.

    February 10, 2010

  • Rodney

    Sure thing, Barb. The usual spot? Set the time though as I'm not sure about drive time to Rome Pt.

    February 10, 2010

  • Tom

    Barb, I'm open to carpooling.

    Rodney or anyone else. Open to carpooling this Sat? My cold is down to the sniffles stage so should be ok by the weekend.

    February 9, 2010

    No kiddin'. I hadn't realized we were actually due to get some weather of that magnitude. There are a dozen caches at Rome Point, I'll bring the info and perhaps some of them aren't buried beyond finding.

    Cormorant mentioned a geocache. After we see the seals we can go geocaching. ( is that a word LOL ) We found a message box here in January, where you can sign your name. Rodney, the trails seem very hard but, after I saw the weather forecast for Wed., I hope you have Skis for your Stroller. LOL

    February 8, 2010

  • Rodney

    Sounds like a leisurely walk. I'll pull some geocaches for the area then since Tamora reminded of that! Are these packed soil trails or "native" trails for the potential to bring along my daughter in a trail stroller?

    Rodney wanted to know how far and how long. I plan to Hike 1 hr to get us warm and then see the Seals. 3 miles. We can head back and depending on the group we can go another 30 - 90 minutes. The Trails wind around the Main Path so people can cut out anytime. 1 - 4 more miles. I am flexible.
