The guided hike will take you to the top of the hill, the highest point in Providence, 296 feet above sea level, from which you can see spectacular views of the City and nearly a quarter of the State. Several miles of hiking/walking trails provide a panoply of picturesque stone walls, unique geological formations, natural springs and brooks, wild flowers and berries. Dress for the day's weather—be sure to wear comfortable walking shoes or hiking shoes. We also recommended insect repellent year 'round as a precaution against ticks which may carry Lyme Disease. Free; $5 per family donation suggested; no advance reservations required. Suitable for ages 5 and up. Dogs on a leash are welcome. Any cancellations will be noted on the Neutaconkanut Facebook page and website. (401) 719-1482; susan@nhill.org; www.nhill.org.

Rhode Island Independence Day, Statewide

'The fourth day of May... is established, in this state, as a day for celebration of Rhode Island independence, being a just tribute to the memory of the members of our general assembly, who, on the fourth day of May, 1776... passed an act renouncing allegiance of the colony to the British crown and by the provisions of that act declared Rhode Island sovereign and independent, the first official act of its kind by any of the thirteen American colonies.'
