A road to Jerimoth Hill, the highest point in Rhode Island
At 247m (812ft) above the sea level, Jerimoth Hill is the highest natural point in the state of Rhode Island, in USA.
It’s located in Providence County in the town of Foster, near the Connecticut border. The road to reach the highest point is totally paved. It’s called Rhode Island Highway 101, but also known as Old Hartford Pike. It’s totally straight. On the highway there’s a sign indicating that Jerimoth Hill is on the shoulder of the highway but that is not the actual high point. To reach the roof of Rhode Island you hike south 500 feet, past an abandoned and dilapidated house, and gaining about ten feet of elevation to the summit. It is in the woods to the south. You can park on either the north or south side of the highway.
