The Buck Hill Management Area in Pascoag, RI. Relatively secluded public woods with several hiking trails. The point is in some very dense woods about 200 feet off one of the main paths.
This was my first geohash, and it turned out to be a pretty good one. After packing the essentials and armed with my trusty Droid Incredible, I hopped in the Sciencemobile (read: my dad's aquamarine Prius) and drove about 60 miles from Boston to Pascoag. The place was kind of hard to find, it ended up being an unmarked dirt path off of a 3 mile long back country road. The trek to the hash was fairly long and uneventful, the only person I ran into was a guy out for a drive with his dog in the parking lot. After reaching the end of the trail I trekked through the underbrush for about 20 minutes I managed to find the hashpoint. After dropping a marker and taking some pictures I went back to the Sciencemobile and headed over to a local Wendy's for a delicious Baconator (hells yeah). All in all it was a good day.
