Jerimoth Hill – Foster

 

This hike might take the distinction of being the shortest one thus far, but it is one of the most significant. People travel all over the country to climb to the highest points in each state. Rhode Island may have the easiest. It is a short trail having a round trip of around a 1/3 of a mile. It starts on the south side of Rhode Island Route 101 just east of utility pole #212 and is well marked. Keep in mind though that the access trail is on private property and is available to use between 8 A.M. and 6 P.M. only. There is a small parking area across the street. At the end of the trail is a clearing and just off to the right is an outcrop. This is the highest point in Rhode Island topping out at 812 feet above sea level. There is a strongbox here to sign in and write a little something if you choose. For those interested, there is a set of geodetic survey disks along the trail and they are very well marked.
