What we're about

Welcome to the Narragansett Chapter Meetup! This Meetup is sponsored by the Narragansett Chapter of the Appalachian Mountain Club (Joining this Meetup Group does not automatically make you an AMC member).

The purpose of our Meetup is to introduce others to the wonderful outdoor opportunities offered by the AMC Narragansett Chapter. As a Meetup member, you have no obligation to join the AMC.But, if you enjoy participating in our events, we hope you will consider joining the AMC (https://www.outdoors.org/join-today?chapter=NA&campaign=70150000001EMs5AAG).

Please, only RSVP if you plan on attending the event. For the consideration of our leaders, we ask that you contact us if you have RSVP'ed and can no longer attend.

Our events are led by highly qualified, trained AMC volunteers who are always concerned about safety. They take every precaution to assure participant risk is minimized and fun is maximized.

Black Point Trail on the Ocean

Needs a location

Join the AMC Narragansett Chapter for an exquisite 2.1 mile up and back hike near Scarborough Beach. After all the hot weather, let's take a cool morning ocean walk with stunning views.

Please Register and sign the AMC waiver: Register Here

I will add names from the waitlist as people register. I know it looks like just me going, but registering at the AMC site is really helpful, so we are experimenting with ways to encourage people to smash that button and sign up! We have room for eight, the lot is small.

There is more information, descriptions and clarification on the AMC site: Find Out More

100-Acre Cove, Barrington, RI

Needs a location

Come kayak 5-6 miles upstream from Walker's Farm in Barrington, and hopefully, over the dam as the tide will be coming in. Be prepared for the distance with plenty of water, some snacks, bug spray, sun lotion; your PFD must be on & fastened! There is no place to get out of the boats on this trip so have your food & water accessible. The water may vary from flat & smooth to a bit choppy. Meet at Walker's Farm at the boat ramp (the only boat ramp there): 509 County Rd, Barrington, RI High heat, lots of wind, rain, or threat of thunder/lightning will cancel.
