Route: Jerimoth Hill Trail

In the region for the weekend, I decided I'd check out the Rhode Island highpoint.

The Jerimoth Hill Trail started off as a hiking trail, prior to joining a dirt access road for the remainder of the short walk to the summit area. Along the way, there were signs pointing out various benchmarks. The trail itself was virtually flat with good footing - a runner could do this trek roundtrip in about a minute.

The flat summit didn't feature any views, though there was a mailbox register, cairn, and sign.

While by no means a destination hike, it was a nice walk nonetheless.
