Hillside and Loop Trail Nature Hike
September 15, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Location: West Greenwich
The West Greenwich Land Trust invites you to explore its 80-acre Fry Pond Conservation Area on an approximately 2.5 mile guided hike through upland forest and past rock cairns, glacial pebbles, classic dry-stacked walls, and groves of wild blueberries. This hike will be led by Hank Webster of the West Greenwich Land Trust.
Plan to walk approximately 2.5 miles over rough ground and well-established hillside trails rated up to 4-C, which means a good deal of significant hill climbing and somewhat difficult terrain over rocky or rooted paths. As always, make sure you are well-equipped with appropriate attire and footwear.
Travel light but there are no services or conveniences along this trail. Reservations are not necessary but the walk will begin promptly at 10:00 a.m.
Contact Hank Webster before the hike at firstname.lastname@example.org or on the morning of the hike at 401-239-8500. For more information on the West Greenwich Land Trust, visit http://www.wglandtrust.org. You can also view a detailed trail map of the Fry Pond Conservation Area here.
Meet at the West Greenwich Town Pavilion, located directly behind Town Hall at 280 Victory Highway, West Greenwich, RI. There is ample parking around Town Hall but if additional spaces are needed, please use the gravel soccer parking lot directly south of the main town hall complex. Please DO NOT park along Route 102 or in front of the Hianloland Fire Station.
