Rhode Island may be the smallest state with the longest name (State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations), but it makes up for it in miles of coastline. “The Ocean State” is a playground for water sport enthusiasts from sailors to surfers. Historic harbor towns such as Newport, Wickford and Bristol attract many visitors each year to take part in summer events and shopping. If you live in the Rhode Island area or are planning a trip to visit, be sure to check out our full line up of kayaking and paddleboarding activities from lesson and rentals at Lincoln Woods State Park, to guided scenic tours of Newport Harbor.
Come and enjoy the trails at Chase Farm Park on an evening snowshoe hike with one of our knowledgeable Guides at Eastern Mountain Sports. This is an area that is rich in history and culture dating back to the early 1800’s. It is now the site of the oldest working farm in Lincoln, RI and abuts the historic Hearthside House. Explore the open fields of Chase Farm and wooded trails of Butterfly Gardens. Our gentile winter hikes will circumnavigate Cow pond and explore the hills of Echo Point. This is a fantastic place to learn the art of winter hiking or just get out for a few after a long day at work. This area is appropriate for all abilities and offers gentile rolling hills to explore the virtues of winter traction. Our guides will provide headlamps, snowshoes, microspikes, and poles to provide float and traction to this frozen environment. Simply dress warm, dawn your winter hat and gloves bring your full laced winter boots or hiking boots and our guides will help you experience the rest. Get outside and enjoy winter with one of our experienced Eastern Mountain Sports Guides. You will be glad you did it!
