Thursday Hike (Sunday Addition): Wickford Walk

Sunday March 26th @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm

This is a Yankee Trailer hike which we have been invited to. Join Tim Cranston on a brisk walk through Wickford. We will begin at the Town Hall at 80 Boston Neck Road and proceed up to the Wickford Elementary School site across the NK Free Library property and through the Bush Hill Nature Preserve before finishing up at the Town Wharf at the end of Main Street. Along the way we will learn about the story behind the Hussey Bridge, the tales of both the Ten Rod Road and the Washington Academy, and the story of Wickford Village from the time of native Narragansetts right through to the present day. The hike is 2.5 miles but there is an opportunity to walk to the beach to add more distance.

To sign up, contact hike leader: TBD

Thursday hikes are FREE. 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. Hikes leave promptly.


  • Ending times are estimated as it difficult to ascertain when it will finish due to number of people, how fast/slow the hikers walk, etc.
  • 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.
  • 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.
