Rolling trails through a historic forest that provides habitat for several endangered plant species. This 450-acre parcel of land, less than a mile away from the charming Four Corners of Tiverton, is a woodsy destination for bikers, trail runners, and horseback riders.
These woods were named for Weetamoo (which means “sweetheart”), also known as the Squaw Sachem. She was the wife of Massasoit, who was a chief of the Wampanoag Pocasset tribe, and a warrior in her own right. Today Weetamoo Woods is home to dozens of plant species, including pink lady’s slipper, dwarf ginseng, flowering dogwood, American chestnut, and mountain laurel.
