The Tiverton Open Space Commission manages Weetamoo Woods; a 500 or so acre track of predominantly coastal hardwood forest. The area consists of several types of oak, beech, maple, ash and others which surround an Atlantic white cedar swamp.
There are several well maintained trail loops which bring you through different areas of the woods. Depending on which one you take, you can see the remains of early American settlements including fieldstone walls, old cellar holes, an arched stone bridge, and a sawmill.
Dogs are allowed in the woods either on leash or under positive control (if your dogs are good they can run free!)
Trail maps are frequently found at trail head or available at the Tiverton town hall
From route 24 take main road in Tiverton (rt77) south about 5.5 miles, turn left on Lafayette Rd to a small parking lot at end of street
The South entrance is located about a half mile east of Tiverton Four Corners on rt. 179

UpsideVery nice little preserve. Trails are very well marked. Cool history with some interesting remains to see.
DownsideA lot of the trails are old cart paths that are not that interesting or technical. Can be very wet and trails could use quite a bit of work to make it more MTB friendly and sustainable.
CommentAnyone else who rides a bike here please get in touch. I would like to ride with others and also think we should start a little bit of organized trail work. Could make this place amazing with just a few hours work.
