Description

White Point consists of a low wall that runs perpendicular to the water offering roughly twenty feet of traversing before meeting with a small egg shaped boulder that is rested atop one side of the wall, this creates a small cave like feature that is utilized in several of the climbs. The rock, like that at Black Point, is primarily made up of granite crimps and slopers as well as numerous sharp quartz crystals that pepper the boulder. The constant sea breeze rolling off the water at this boulder,and its neighbor Black Point, makes it a refreshing spot to climb at on hot summer days.The small cave offers perfect shelter from the sun in between climbs and when it's just too hot to climb. The Black Point boulder and adjacent fishing area see a fair amount of traffic in summer months but the White Point boulder is fairly secluded from the trail and as a result it's rarely crowded.

Getting There

Park at the Black Point Trailhead (Ocean Rd & Rhode Island Ave
Narragansett, RI 02882). Follow the Malcolm Grant Trail straight from the parking lot down to the coast line; there is a small boulder in the middle of the path marking the trail that slopes down to the water.This trail leads straight to the Black Point boulder on the coast. The wall where White Point is located is a short, 5-10 minute, hike north up the coast over mostly rocky terrain and a field of small boulders.The low wall starts at the coast line and works up to a small boulder perched on top of it.
