Weeden Farm – South Kingstown

 
 

Weeden Farm is a South Kingstown Land Trust property along Matunuck Beach Road. If you are a stone wall enthusiast then this site is well checking out. In fact, at the kiosk near the parking area there is a pamphlet for the “Stone Wall Geology Tour”. There are 8 separate spots featured along the way that give descriptions of some stones such as quartz, granite, and conglomerate. Weeden Farm also features corn and hay fields that are separated by the predominant tree lined stone walls. I opted to follow the perimeter loop trail which in total in about 1.2 miles. I did see some cows (on the neighboring farm), as well as several blackbirds, robins, and one circling hawk.

Trail map can be found at: Weeden Farm.
