What is the highest drivable mountain in Rhode Island? It is Jerimoth Hill – the highest natural point in the state. Check out this episode of the Motor Mountain USA as Nathan and Andre push east to the highest mountain of Rhode Island.
Jerimoth Hill stands 812 feet above sea level and requires a very quick walk off state route 101 (Old Hartford Pike). The high point is among a forested private property, but the neighboring owners agreed to have the trail open daily between 8am-6pm. There is plenty of signage explaining the rules and asking you to stay on the designated trail. It is also an active hunting area.
One of the best ways of experiencing America first hand is hitting the open road with the windows and top down in the 2015 Jeep Rubicon Wrangler Rubicon Hard Rock. The Motor Mountain USA (#MMUSA) team embarks upon an epic road trip this year by visiting the highest drivable roads of every state in the USA. Along the way Nathan, Roman, Andre and Emme will visit locales less traveled and uniquely American attractions that make the United States one of the world’s favorite tourist destinations.
The Rhode Island belt buckle was hidden near the Jerimoth Hill high point. However, the buckle was claimed the day before before we published this episode. Brian S. and his daughter were persistent, calmed the area, and found the buckle.
