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.

loved it ..definetly a nice place for a hike & maybe fishing & picnic

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!

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.

nice view and good spot for biking

Liked this park but got lost its so big

Great place. My only issue is the trails are not well marked in some points. Even with map on here it was difficult to find trail at points.

ok but thete was mountain bikes and dirt bike did see some bull frogs

Great walk for the pup

You really have to pay attention to the trail markings as there is many ways you could go. Not a bad day hike took about 2 hours without stopping for long at the old shelters.

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.

Found this trail on a post located here on great hikes in Rhode Island:


This is a moderate hike through the Arcadia Wildlife Management Area. For full instructions of the hike see the above link. It covers several different trails and requires some attention to blazes and instructions. Start the hike at Frosty Hollow Pond Fishing Area parking lot in Exeter:


Leave 3-4 hours for this hike as you will want to explore some of the abandoned camps along the way.

Went with a 6 and 9 year old and it was no problem for them. Great hike.
