This would be my fifth hike of the day in South County as I try to rebuild endurance after my injury. My goal is to reach the 9 to 10 mile threshold before I start adding hills and climbs back into the routine (My total for the day after 6 hikes would be 8.9 miles). This was also my first hike in Narragansett since the August 10th injury (I was in Narragansett that morning). Canonchet Farm lies across the street from Narragansett Beach. I started this hike from the parking area and almost immediately came across a large boulder along the trail. Shortly after the boulder is a short trail that leads to the shore of a pond. I stopped briefly to take some pictures. I then returned to the main trail and followed it as it meandered along stone walls and Pinewood boardwalks. There is another trail that heads into the abutting wildlife preserve to the shore of Pettaquamscutt Cove. After exploring this I returned to the main trail. My next stop was to photograph some farm animals near the South County Museum. I then continued, crossing a stream, before the trail ended near a community center. I then retraced my steps back to the car.
