  Fall Activities Day
 Moderator: Jeff Mee
10:00 am - 03:30 pm
FREE 50 48

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”.

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 off by the ocean, on occasion, so an alternate may become necessary.  If so, I'll let you know after you register.)  Upon entering the beach, pass the guard shack and take a right.  Go to the end and 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!
