Highest Point in Rhode Island
Oct 2021
My husband and I have gotten into visiting state high points. We'll probably never hit them all because we're not into mountaineering, but it's still a fun side jaunt to do while on vacation. The highest point in Rhode Island is shortly over the border of Connecticut/Rhode Island. It's only 812 feet. You park in a small dirt lot across the street from the trail. It's only about a 5 minute walk to the highest point. It took us longer to find the trail than it did to actually walk the trail. At the highest point, they have a logbook, a geological marker, Japanese prayer flags and a rock statue.

A check on the list

You go to Jerimoth Hill to say you did it, to say you reached a state high point. Park your car, walk a couple hundred feet and take some pictures on the rock that is the high point. There is no view and no excitement, but there is a geological survey marker just before you get there, if that's your thing. There is also a high pointer registry, if that, too, is your thing.

Go forth on your quest to high point the United States. There are far more exciting moments ahead of you!

A "high point", but not a high point
Jan 2017
We're attempting to climb the high points of several states. This one is kind of laughable. A pleasant enough very short walk. Not worth a special trip.

Well maintained High Point
Jun 2016 • Friends
It's funny that you can hike up boulders gaining hundreds of feet of elevation to reach a high point that is devoid of marker or sign-in log, and then visit a high point like Jerimoth Hill that celebrates your 500 yard walk through a park like you have summited everest! I think we counted 5 or 6 trail markers on our 5 minute stroll through a pine needle cushioned trail shaded by trees. Have fun bagging this High Point.

Another high point bagged
Jun 2016 • Family
Well maintained. Was easy enough to get to the peak. The road you have to cross is a bit hazardous as you are top of a hill and unable to see either side. Really enjoyed this little jaunt.

Our Third Highpoint!
Jun 2016 • Couples
At only 812 feet, Rhode Island's Highpoint is nothing special. A nice short flat stroll through a wooded path and you're there. A little hard to find the entrance to the trail. There are signs on both sides of the road in the general area of the trail entrance. The entrance is on the eastbound side of route 101 while their is a small dirt parking area across the road on the westbound side of route 101. Enjoy!

Most intense hike ever
Apr 2016 • Friends
The state with the next highest high point is mountainous Illinois. That should give you a hint about how intense of a hike you will have on the out and back Jerimoth Hill hike. You will sweat buckets but worth it for the view of some of Rhode Island's loveliest trees. There were also some Nepali prayer flags because this climb is probably the best possible training for ascending Everest!

Fun, easy jaunt to a high point!
I definitely wouldn't go out of my way to come here, but it was really fun and easy for me and my little ones to walk the 200 yards to this Rhode Island high point. Yes, walk. This is not a hike. There is no incline. It's a pleasant stroll through a wooded area to a couple little boulders that mark the high point. We took a picnic and sat on the rocks and ate. There is a little bit of parking on the side of the road and a small sign that points to Jerimoth Hill so you know where to start walking. I actually really liked it, but you'll complete the round trip in 10 minutes so don't be thinking it's something it's not!

Thank god I was close & Didn't actually travel far to get there.
There's no view, there are 2 summit plates & the trail is just short & pathetic stuck between 2 yards. I'm glad I did it just to say I bagged the highest summit in Rhode Island but other than that, its just aweful. If you wanna bag the highest state sumit then you have no choice but to do it but if your looking for an outing, travel either west to the berkshires or north to the blue hills.
