The great wide open is closer than you think. One of the benefits of being in such a small coastal State is that you can walk the cliffs of Newport in the morning and be in dense forest on the western forest after lunch. Just because you're in downtown Providence doesn't mean that you can't take a day hike anywhere in the State. Within an hour tops, you can be deep in the woods far from civilization, even though the closest main road will undoubtedly be only 3 miles away in either direction. Let Steve Mirsky take you to the best, often hidden, hiking routes right here in Rhode Island.

Taking advantage of the patchwork of conserved lands protected over the past century, the book showcases the region’s premier hiking destinations that include national parks, forests, and wildlife refuges; state parks, public lands, and wildlife management areas; and land trust preserves. Jeff has detailed a range of trails, from a nearby hike you can knock out before dinner, to one promising more challenge and big rewards in terms of views and solitude. This new guide covers the best day hiking trails in six states, including short jaunts on the Appalachian Trail, the lush hills and coast of Maine, the White Mountains of New Hampshire, the Long Trail in Vermont, the Massachusetts coast, the Berkshires and forests of Connecticut, and the preserves of Rhode Island. **Mountaineers Books designates 1 percent of the sales of select guidebooks in our Day Hiking series toward volunteer trail maintenance.
