  Fall Activities Day

This year the Fall Activities Day will be a little more inland and less subject to the weather, it is being held at the Arcadia Wildlife Management area in Exeter, East Greenwich and Hope Valley, RI.

At over 14,000 mostly forested acres, the Arcadia Management Area is the state’s largest recreational area, offering a great variety of opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. eXtreme Croquet, fishing, boat/kayak/canoe, hiking and mountain biking to name a few activities. There are no bike or boat rentals in the management area, but there are rentals available a few miles away. Miles upon miles of gravel roads and well marked and maintained trails entice hikers. These same trails are often used by mountain bikers or horseback riders so all users need to act responsibly, show courtesy, and “share the road”.

Please bring a lunch to enjoy at the site. 

To get there take exit 5A from route 95.

 

Go one mile on route 102 to route 3 south.

 

After a mile on Rt 3 South turn right at the flashing traffic light on to Rt. 165 south

 

Travel for approximately 3 miles on Rt. 165 South turn right on to Frosty Hollow Road.  There is a White Church on the corner of Route 165 and Frosty Hollow Road. Also there is a sign for Camp-E-Huntee.

 

Travel about 0.8 miles on Frosty Hollow Road to Frosty Hollow Pond on the right, keep going past the pond over the one lane bridge.

 

Travel about 200-300 yards further and there will be a small sign for “Shelter permit required” and a Chiltern sign on your left, this is the dirt road that leads to Frosty Hollow Campsite. The site is about 500 yards down this narrow dirt road.

Last Sunset Hike

We plan to take a hike then enjoy the last sunset of 2017 as it sets over the ocean!  We expect to step off at 3:00 p.m. and make a loop through the Provincelands returning for sunset at 4:19 p.m. on the beach.  The terrain is sand dunes with a few long, slow climbs on the paved path.  Meet at the north end of the Herring Cove Beach parking lot.  This lot has been cut in two by the ocean.  So, you'll need to turn right from Route 6 eastbound onto Provincelands Road, pass the main entrance and continue to the next left which will take you into the end of the parking lot.  We’ll gather near the trail head in the corner of the lot.  

Please let me know you’ll join us by sending a note by December 27th to stvnwlknsn@hotmail.com with your telephone number, for the day of the hike, so I can let you know if cancellation becomes necessary.  (I don’t expect to access electronic mail in 2017 after the 27th.)  Happy New Year!
