On The Trail
ON THE TRAIL
When venturing out into the woods be sure to be prepared. Bring plenty of water especially on hotter days or longer hikes. Be sure to wear good and sturdy shoes and layered clothing. Maps and GPS devices are always suggested especially in areas that are large and sprawling. Bug spray and sunscreen are always suggested as well. Cell reception is relatively good in almost all parts of Rhode Island. Always keep a cell phone on you in case of an emergency. 9-1-1 is used statewide if you need to call the authorities for an emergency. Understanding maps and trail blazes is recommended.
