Jerimoth Hill Is The Greatest Mountain Hiking Trail In Rhode Island For Beginners
Rhode Island has an impressive amount of natural beauty, not to mention mile after mile of gorgeous coastline. But when it comes to mountain ranges, the Ocean State comes up a bit short. But the closest thing we have to a mountain, Jerimoth Hill, happens to have the highest point in the state — and it’s a must-see for hikers who enjoy highpointing. And since it’s less than a mile in length, it’s a great adventure for beginners.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
