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.

I have been biking at Weetamoo several times since it's only 10 minutes from my house. I have always been a big fan. As long as you go in expecting to be able to cover all trails in 1.5-2 hours, then you'll like it. The trails are mostly intermediate. There are a fair amount of rock gardens and roots, mostly single track trails.

it is a graet trail that you can come back to over and over again. The first time you go you will get lost going on every trail so the next time you will not get lost there is also a reservation next to it and that has some man made beams that are fun. if you take the entrane by the four corners, stick to the main trail intell you get to the river(not the first time you see it)then you go strate then turn left & go up the red trail intil you get to a clearing then you can take any of the purple trails(take the right one if you like technecal turane)
