Jerimoth Hill (812 ft, 247 m) is the highest point in the U.S. state of Rhode Island. Located in the town of Foster in the northwest of the state, the site is used as an observatory. It is also a popular destination for highpointers, and prior to 2005 was known for being difficult to access due to a local landowner who prohibited entry.
