Download Ft. Barton Woods Cultural History and Natural Communities

During the American Revolution these "Tiverton highlands" represented an important strategic location for preventing an invasion of the mainland across the narrow Sakonnet River strait by British Forces who occupied Aquidneck Island. This historic landmark is at the crest of hill near the entrance. An outlook tower now stands among the original Revolutionary War earthen mounds allowing for an expansive view of the Sakonnet River and beyond.

The Fort Barton Woods natural area is a mature, mixed hardwood forest, with some trees exceeding 100 years of age. Given the variety of conditions -- exposed bedrock, streams, slopes, and upland soil -- there is a diverse assemblage of woodland herbaceous plants and shrubs throughout Fort Barton Woods. Trails in the natural areas include rustic foot bridges, sloped inclines and rocky paths that require stamina and sure footing for safe passage.

Download Weetamoo Woods Trail Map and directions

Weetamoo Woods is over 750 acres of varied habitats, including rare coastal oak-holly forest and an Atlantic white cedar swamp. There are 5+ miles of walking trails. Part of the original Pocasset Purchase roadway (ca. 1685) is still visible, along with cellar holes and the remains of a village sawmill. Grasslands research is being conducted on a 12-acre parcel within the woods. Weetamoo was the last sachem of the Pocasset Tribe of Wampanoag Indians. She supported the Great Sachem, Metacom (King Philip), in the King Philip's War and died in that conflict.
