Fort Barton/Sin and Flesh Brook Trail Professional Review and Guide
"From atop the observation tower at the site of Fort Barton on the Smith Rock Trail, kids will not have a hard time imagining themselves as Revolutionary War soldiers scanning the harbor for British ships. Although nothing resembling a fort remains at this site, the park is dotted with boulders and mounds for climbing. (The earthworks that have survived are intentionally unrestored.) The trail from the fort site winds back and forth across the brook like one strand in a braid; some of these frequent crossings have rather rickety bridges, though one Tiverton resident assured us that the bridges will be replaced soon. Children will need the help of an adult to manage these river crossings as they currently are."
