Upcoming Outings:

Round Top Management Area Hike and Season's End Fishing
Date: November 16, 10am.
Contact: Dana Goodman, RI Chapter Chair at 401.651.4595
Directions: Rt. 96, Harrisville, RI  - Directions from Google might be tricky. Plan on your destination as the Burrillville Rod and Gun Club. The Management area is less than 1 mile further down the road, entrance is obvious across from a small bridge. If Rod and Gun Club is on your Right, Management area will also be on the Right. If you bypass it, you will see the pond through the trees and there you are!

 

In light of Sierra Club's recent participation in the fight against the Spectra Energy Compressor Station in Burrillville, this hike will explore one of Burrillville's many beautiful hiking and fishing recreation spots. Round Top and Little Round Top are connected by Round Top Brook and seasonally stocked with Trout. There is plenty of parking on site.

This is a short hike to explore the forest around the brook, easy enough for most people. Following the hike, people can picnic and fish at the small pond or go back along the trail to fish the brook. Bring a camera for scenic pictures and: Please bring your fishing license!
