Newport County Highpoint Trip Report

Pocasset Hill

From I-95, take exit 8 and proceed south 5 miles on RI 24 to RI 138. Exit off RI 24 and go north on RI 138 for 1.1 miles to Pocasset Avenue. Turn right and go a few blocks to its end. Park.

Walk 100 feet and look for a BM Poccaset 1963 in a large flat rock area. A higher boulder jutting out a few feet away is likely the highpoint. There was heavy construction in progress nearby around the reservoir, although it appeared they were leaving the pond intact.
