Went for a nice trail run here. Parked at the end of Lafayette Rd and ran to the other end of the yellow trail, then took the red-green detour on the way back. Overall, it was a great run with varied terrain. In some places, the roots and rocks required that I walk, but this was a very small portion. The canopy offered lots of shade and the trails were dry given the lack of rain. I only ran into 3 other people and a total of about 6 dogs. None of the dogs were on the leash, but that didn't bother me, as they were all well-behaved. Followed up with a double-dip cone down the road at Gray's to make it a great outing.
The main trails are relatively well-marked at intersections, although there were some other intersections with minor trails that were not. However, with a good idea of the direction I wanted to go and the All Trails app, I did just fine. Will definitely be back.

Great walk for kids and pets.

Not marked well at all. Very easy to end up on the wrong trail back to your vehicle.

Did the smaller of the trails and it was a good hike. My husband and I did the trail around the pond. Beautiful scenes, saw the waterfall, and got a decent sweat out of it.

This was an okay trail! Got lost very easily with those trail markers and it was tick central. Very beautiful but probably wouldn’t go back just because of the high grass and ticks because of the dog. Super muddy points and lots of fern leaves!

This is a great 2.5 mile walk. Brought our 13 year old son and he enjoyed it as well. Loved the signage along the trail.

Beautiful and peaceful

It isn’t immediately obvious where the marked trail starts. Once you find it, the trail is mostly nice with a few less than scenic patches.

great for kids, well marked

Went off the trail but still a great hike!

Nice trail run for beginner trail runners

There was quite a bit of liter in and around the parking area. Also some as well a little ways into the trail. This was irritating to see. Also some of the trails felt like I was on a dirt bike track. However after that section it became much nicer and the walk along the fields and brook was good.

Beautiful spot for a winter walk with the dog. Well maintained well marked trails. Woods, wetlands, variety of woodland plants. Friendly people along the way.

Perfect amount of information. Kids ran from sign to sign screaming, "another clue!" I felt like I learned about & could recognize more of the wildlife. Quiet - could clearly hear bird calls.

Very kid friendly. Took 2.5 & 5.5 year olds on red trail. They loved jumping over fallen logs and climbing over one stony stretch!

Edit 3/23: Pardon Gray portion of the trails are poorly marked and poorly maintained. There is an electric fence which made it very stressful. Puppy kept eating the ubiquitous goose poop, so I kept having to scoop it out of her mouth (blech!). If you have kids or dogs, recommend using the Weetamoo Woods entrances on East Rd. or Lake Rd.

Easier hiking trail, but nice hike. Previously reported as not well marked, but recently trail markings have been updated and we had no issue finding our way. I would definitely go back!

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!!

Not well marked. Had nice water sights. Beautiful in winter.

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!

Definitely not 4.6 miles.
2.5 at the most as marked.

I ran the loop twice and added the Amy Hart loop and came out at exactly 4 miles.

There’s a little downhill as you enter the trail. Other than that it is pretty flat. Very manicured trail. You might want to walk it the first time! There’s tons of signs with information about the land and the flora. Including maps and pictures.

If you are a trail runner; this is a great place for flat speed workouts.

Did the western section and the trail seems to go on and off Summit RD. We stayed on the road as I knew the area. at the intersection of Summit and Arcadia Roads the trail looks like it is supposed to go through the fish hatchery but there were signs say no admission. We ended up staying on the road heading back to our vehicle. This is why my 2 start rating.

This was a 2.5 mile walk for us (not sure why it's listed at 4.5 miles). Unique forest growth due to proximity to warmer ocean that features oak and holly, which rarely coexist in a forest. Thanks to truly dedicated volunteers, there are dozens of interpretive and route signs, plus over two dozen handcrafted bird houses made with native tree parts and placed in trees for all to enjoy. Trails are mowed to fight ticks and there's even complimentary bug spray placed along the way. Highly recommend for families!

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.

There was alot of people fishing along pond and people in kayaks. Not so good for hiking although we couldnt find trail so we went around a somewhat trail along pond.. few previous camper areas that had piles of trash was awful. around pond is only 1.2 miles so we definitely didnt follow right path

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.
