    I would highly recommend visiting your closest Eastern Mountain Sports store as many group activities are planned here.
    You can also look into AMC's home page: http://www.outdoors.org

    You can find a local EMS store here:

    Another place to look is http://www.gonewengland.org/

    Good luck!

    Depending on where you are, I'm sure there is a club near you.
    In addition to the ones already mentioned - there are many chapters of the Green mountain Club (www.greenmountainclub.org) in VT and the Adirondack Mountain Club (www.adk.org) in NY. There's also the NJ Trails conference (don't have the URL)
    Others exist for the Catskills region, Bigelows region in Maine. (sorry, I don't know much south of there... but I'm sure there are many.)

    Also look into local universities/colleges - Dartmouth Outing Club might be able to point you in the right direction.

    I'm with a club with our local YMCA - in Montreal.

    We also have many "for profit" outing groups in our region....

    Just ask around, I'm sure you'll find more clubs than you can shake your walking stick at!

    Thanks a lot for all the answers. Unfortunately, there are no EMS stores in RI. The AMC doesn't operate here, because the trail is too far west of us. GONewEngland is a great site, but they too don't have anything going on in RI on their site. Yes it's possible to do some activities in MA or CT. I'm still looking for my main group to be close to home. I still appreciate your input : )

    Rocklobster - Have you checked out the Narragansett Chapter of AMC? It's the local Rhode Island affiliate of the Boston based chapter:

    http://users.ids.net/~amcri/

    Check out their message board too - http://users.ids.net/~amcri/guestbook.html

    Here's some walking/hiking info from About's Providence page - http://providence.about.com/cs/walkinghiking/

    And of course, check back here! Hope this helps.
    I ski double black diamonds.
