The Best Places for Rock Climbing in Lincoln Woods State Park

Lincoln Woods State Park is in the town of Lincoln, Rhode Island, and is a favorite spot for rock climbers. The park has miles of hiking trails, a beach, and, most importantly, huge granite cliffs perfect for climbing. In this blog post, I’ll share some of the best spots in the park for rock climbing.

One of the great things about rock climbing in Lincoln Woods State Park is that there’s something for everyone. Whether you’re brand new or an experienced climber, you’ll be able to find a route that suits your skill level. Here are a few of my favorites:

For beginners, we recommend the Central Cliffs. There are plenty of easy routes to choose from, and the views from the top are incredible.

If you’re looking for something more challenging, check out the South Cliffs. There are some tough routes here, but the sense of accomplishment you’ll feel when you reach the top is unbeatable.

One of the best unintended benefits of traveling to these rock climbing sites in a large pass van rental from Providence is that you have your own personal changing room and lounge area in the back of the van. If we remove the back two rows of seats for you, you have plenty of room to create your own changing area, and there are enough seats for everybody to lounge around when you need a nice long break in the air conditioning.

For those who want to test their limits, the East Cliffs are where you’ll find the most difficult climbs in the park. Of course, these routes are not for those most afraid of either a tough climb or a challenge, but the views from the top are absolutely breathtaking.

Whatever your experience level, rock climbing in Lincoln Woods State Park is an activity not to be missed. With so many different cliffs and routes to choose from, there’s something for everyone. Grab your gear and head to one of the best rock-climbing spots in Rhode Island!

Some Quick Pass Van Rental Tips for the Trip

1. If you’ve read any of our other tips on road trips, you know that we’re big on preparation. One of the first things you’ll want to do before heading out for your big adventure is to decide on a route and ensure everyone agrees. It’s important that everyone knows where you’re going and how you’re getting there. Trying to figure out directions while you’re on the road can be stressful.

2. Make sure everyone pitches in for gas. It’s not fair if one person has to pay for everything, so make sure that everyone contributes. This can be crucial if you have friends with different income levels.

3. Take breaks! Driving for long periods of time is tiring, so make sure to take breaks every few hours. This will help everyone stay refreshed and focused.

4. Designate a driver before you start the trip. It’s important to have someone who is not easily distracted and responsible behind the wheel.

5. Have an emergency plan in case something goes wrong. Be sure to let everyone knows exactly what to do should an accident or another emergency situation occurs. By being prepared, you can avoid potential disasters.

6. Remember to have fun! A road trip is a great way to bond with your friends and create memories that will last a lifetime. Enjoy the ride!
