Black Farm & “Canonchet Station”

4.39 miles   2.2 mph after a post on facebook piqued my curiosity, i decided to see how far i could go up the old railroad bed from the main part of black farm. i got as far as the border of the wildlife management area, but once i got home again, i looked at a […]

Fort Barton Woods

2.42 miles  2 mph the fort part of fort barton is an old revolutionary war redoubt. the woods part is typical southeastern new england woods with a mix of beech, holly, and oak containing several trails. and there’s an observation tower, too, which gives a commanding view of the sakonnet river between portsmouth and tiverton.
