Wolf Hill Moderate or Advanced Difficult Hikes. Your Choice.

  • to
  • This location is shown only to members

  • The hike is ON!   Rain or shine.    Bring rain gear.

    Difficulty:  Moderate Hike,  Level 2-3    Not for Beginners

                           Difficult Hike,  Level 3-4     Not for Beginners 

    Distance:    ~5 miles                           

    Duration:     ~2½ hrs

    Legal Orange:   Not required

    Headlamp or Flashlight:  REQUIRED!!!

    We will split up into two groups taking different routes for one MODERATE PACED HIKE and one DIFFICULT PACED HIKE over rough, rocky, hilly trails. You choose. Both will get those lungs working and the blood pumping, but there may be a little running on the more difficult hike. The Moderate paced hike will be taking short breaks along the way.

    Bring water, a snack, proper footwear, and a headlamp. 

    See you Tuesday, 6:00 pm, SHARP!

    A couple of serious points: 

    • -The ticks are still looking for you. Permethrin works best. (On your boots and clothing, not on your skin.) 

    • To avoid ticks, whenever possible walk in the center of trails and try to avoid walking through tall bushes or other vegetation. Use a repellent with DEET (on skin or clothing) or permethrin (on clothing and gear). Repellents containing 20% or more DEET (N, N-diethyl-m-toluamide) can be applied to the skin and can protect up to several hours.

    • -A headlamp or small flashlight is mandatory.

    • -Hydrating well prior to hitting the trail and carrying additional water on the trail is a must. Bring water!

    • -Wear clothing appropriate for the weather, keeping in mind that you will heat up quickly! Synthetic wicking and ventilating materials throughout every layer are best for keeping you dry while sweating. Avoid cotton! Wet clothing can cause hypothermia even above freezing. (Remember the name of the series?)

    -Wear appropriate footwear! Our trails are rough and loaded with toe-stubbing, ankle-twisting rocks and roots. Also be prepared for seasonal trail conditions. There are often plenty of wet, muddy, and perhaps even some icy spots on our trail. This can make for slippery going. We will adjust our speed for safety in these areas.  

    • -Lastly, view the pages tab.  please take a few minutes to check out the tabbed sections in the menu banner at the top of this page. There truly is some awfully good info in there, especially in the 'Pages' section, all intended to help you in becoming a wiser, safer, and happier hiker.

    Hello everyone. I have a commitment to Adoption RI this Tuesday night so I will not be able to lead the fast hike. I apologize in advance but I will be entertaining children dressed up as Captain America!

      I'd love to but the costume is owned by Hasbro and if I took it out in the mud they might not be happy with me. I'll bring you a picture. It is a good suit! lol
