2023 North Smithfield Parks and Recreation Hikes
The North Smithfield Parks and Recreation Department Program Coordinator, Kate Pasquariello, announces that the department will offer guided weekly hikes in three local conservation areas starting at 9:30 am on Saturday, February 4.
The family-oriented hikes will follow well-defined and marked trails at a leisurely pace stopping occasionally at scenic overlooks. Trails are 2-3 miles long and take 1.5 – 2 hours to finish.
Hikes will cancel in the event of steady rain or heavy snowfall. Hikers should wear long shirts and trousers, preferably hiking shoes, use insect repellent, and bring a bottle of water. In the event of snow and ice-covered trails, hikers should wear slip-on ice grips or snowshoes.

Saturday, February 18: Booth Pond, Pine Hill, Souza Farm. Meet at Aldi’s parking lot at Dowling Village.
Saturday, February 25: Audubon Fort Wildlife Refuge: Meet at 1445 Providence Pike, North Smithfield, RI
The schedule repeats the first, third, and fourth Saturday of each month.
