Thursday Hike: Woody Hill Management Area, Westerly

Thursday February 10, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join us for our free-guided trail walks on Thursdays.  Walks are open to all ages with our target group being agile seniors.  Please keep in mind that these are wooded trails with stumps, roots and rocks so be sure to wear hiking boots or good walking shoes. If the weather is icy you should bring stabilizers or something for traction. If a lot of snow bring snowshoes. Be aware that our hikes leave promptly so be on time!

Meet at the Woody Hill Management Area parking lot at 286 Woody Hill Rd. From Rte 1 going North from Westerly take the left immediately before South County Medical Center. If going South from Charlestown, take the right immediately after South County Medical Center. Stay on South Woody Hill Rd for 1.5 miles. Turn left on Fallon Trail for .3 miles. Turn right to park in the lot at 286 Woody Hill Rd. This is an easy hike. We’ll start on the Fallon trail and pass an old cemetery. We’ll pass close to the Shelter Harbor Golf Club before taking the No Name trail to an old house foundation. If it’s not too cold, we may take a side trip on the old cart road that used to go to Ross Hill Rd and see a beautiful pine forest.

To sign up please contact leader: Liz Anderson, 401 322-8619 (h), [email protected]. Alternate leader: Sally Hanson, 401 932-5295 (c).

Due to the COVID:
• We realize lots of people have concerns about getting together. Therefore, please sign up
with leader so that person will know how many are coming. If no one signs up the leader
may not show up.
• Social distancing of 6’ apart.
• Everyone needs to have a face mask in case it is needed.
• Carpooling is up to you or the leader. Keep in mind some folks may be uncomfortable having
someone share their vehicle. An alternate way is to caravan.

  • Inclement weather cancels and if in doubt, contact leader.
  • If you wish to bring a dog please contact the leader as some properties do not allow them.
    However, if a dog is present they must be leashed at all times.
  • If you wish to get the hiking schedule emailed to you contact Lauren Barber,
    [email protected] and ask her to put you on the Thursday hiking group email list.

In State Management areas everyone is required to wear 200 square inches of solid daylight
fluorescent orange from the second Saturday in September to the last day of February and the last
Thursday in April to the last day in May, annually.
