61 Camp Yawgoog Road, Rockville
Not usually open to the general public, Camp Yawgoog has an extensive network of hiking trails through more than 1,800 acres of rugged, beautiful landscape that includes three large ponds. As part of the 100th anniversary celebration of the Camp, the Narragansett Council of the Boy Scouts of America is offering free guided hikes each month through October. We’ve been invited to join Marc Cardin of the Boy Scouts on May 9 for one of these hikes and it’s sure to be a wonderful experience!
This hike is about 2 miles long and involves some rugged, steep terrain. It can be challenging for young or inexperienced hikers. However, there are plenty of opportunities to shorten your hike and Boy Scouts and alumni will be there to guide you. Registration is free and not required, but definitely helpful to those planning the day. If you plan to come, please sign up here.
We will meet at the Bucklin Memorial Building at 9:00am and start our hike by 9:15am. Please wear sturdy footwear and weather appropriate clothing and bring plenty of water and snacks. Click here for a list of guidelines for hiking with kids.
