I parked at Pardon Gray and the small lot had plenty of spots for cars. The trails were very muddy but that is to be expected this time of year. The trails were well marked with varied colored blazes.

The only downside was the paper trail map that was available at the parking area only had half the trails on it. Maybe only the Pardon Gray area and not the Weetamoo Woods trails were listed, even though they all connected. I guess I need to read up on the area to understand why.

Overall, great area to be in the woods!!

Great walk except for the many people we encountered with dogs off leash.

Green trail not blazed but most of our 9 k hike was great!

Trails are very well marked and clear. High Rock was a nice place for a little picnic lunch. Did this one in regular running sneakers, no problem. Would definitely go again.

The trail had lots of potential but was badly marked. Missing trail markers caused for a chaotic and disorienting experience. Bare patches along trees indicated where old markers once were. Possible trail marker tampering made the remaining ones untrustworthy. The trail was also poorly maintained; existing paths forked off into 3 or 4 lightly troded options without a clear indication of where primary trail continued. Trail head signage also confusing: on the map dotted lines leading to main colored trails had no color: in person colored markers instantly appeared, making us second guess our location over and over again.

I went to the woods.... ;-) favorite place to hike in RI so far. Sometimes feels like you're on parts of the AT which is awesome.

I have been going to Weetamoo since I was a kid and now go at least a couple of times a year with my family. It's a great place to hike any time of the year, but our favorite is in the Fall. Be sure to check out High Rock, it is the high point of the woods with great views.

Well marked Trails. All covered with snow and ice today. Averaged 3mph even with the snow! Plenty of marshy areas that you'll want to have waterproof shoes for spring.

Great long trail. Well marked with lots of options for different routes.

I love that I can come here for a short or long hike and it never feels too crowded. All the trails are well-kept, marked and dog-friendly. Only con is that it's pretty buggy, bring repellent!

It was a great hike. Started at the Lafayette Road entrance hiked down Lafayette road path one mile till I got to yellow trail. Hiked down yellow trail about one mile then doubled back to Lafayette road entrance. Great four mile hike. Great location for cross country skiing and mt biking.

Nice hike this morning (4/12/15). I am a novice and it was my first time here. Was a great spring day! Did close to 7 miles in about 2.5 hours. Nice trail maps available. Did most of the available trails. Favorite parts were the green section and the awesome view of the fields that opens up coming out of the woods at the end of Cemetery Trail, walking up toward the stone wall enclosed grave area. Well maintained trails. Many sections are more like walking paths. Great for families and walking dogs. I live in the East Bay area so nice and close. Had a great morning and will be back!

Weetamoo has great trails! And there is so much history here also! A gold mine for local nature walking.
