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

dogs are ok in the offseason and usually after 5 PM in the summer

Bug spray during summer, also wouldn’t necessarily call this easy. One of the few trails I’ve walked in RI with any elevation change to note

Love this trail. Beautifully diverse.

Great trails! My 5 and 9 year old handled it with easy. Easy to find. Good parking.

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!

Kids and I loved this trail. We will definitely be back.

Just got into hiking and I really liked this trail. I wouldn’t exactly call it easy, as it can get hilly in some areas. But I loved the setting in the woods. Path crossed the stream multiple times and was moving at a good pace at some parts. Watch out for mud though! May just be the season but some areas were quite muddy

Really good trail.

great for kids, well marked

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.

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.

Walked the short yellow trail and followed the loop around. My boyfriend and I spotted three bufflehead sea ducks, one male and two females, on the water. On the way back to the parking lot an unidentifiable owl flew overhead. Aside from the overgrown bramble this place is a great spot to view a variety of birds.

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!!

nice, easy paced trail.

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

Wonderful hike. Long enough to get a great workout with the hills. I think I would caution on the side of calling it moderate just in case someone goes thinking it's flat.

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

Surprisingly quiet and very well marked trails.

Lots of ups and downs and dog friendly.

Overall, a good route. There are spots where there's enough up and down to get a good workout, but it never gets too tough for kids or dogs. There's a decent amount of wildlife to see along the way as well.

The biggest downside is that the Rod and Gun club is right next door. The constant sound of gunfire really takes away from the relaxing nature vibe.

Cool observation tower, the trails are a workout which is good, a lot of changes in elevations, rocks and such to maneuver around.

Great for walking

Fun hike. Trail was very busy and well marked. Gets close to the gun club and if they are using the range the gunshots are very loud and may frighten kids or dogs.

A beautiful easy hike with my son on a gorgeous day!

Great little spot with a nice view at the top.

Beautiful trail. Good for all ages about. A good 45 min hike with aide trails... There are creeks, wooden walk ways and bridges.. Also dirt/wood stairs.

Took 1 star of because.... and also beware.... some parts you will see residential... and.... there is a firing range close by and you will hear gun shots go off!!! It can be scary.

Great hike with moderate/east terrain, well marked trails, and dog it's friendly. This is also a preserved historical site where colonial troops defended against the British during the American Revolution. There is a nice view of the water from the top of the redoubt at the beginning of the trails. Will definitely be going back.

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.

Pretty trails, though lots of mosquitos on this July afternoon so take appropriate precautions. I like that the trails are relatively narrow because they feel like secret paths through the forest, but the downside is that you will brush against some plants so be careful of ticks. We didn't find any, this is just a general precaution for New England.

We saw an adult and juvenile warbler in a tree near the path just after leaving the parking lot. Not sure which variety, but very pretty.

Very much looking forward to visiting again in Fall and Winter!
