Seasonal motorcycle and snowmobile users are welcome, as are hunters and fishermen in season. Rattlesnake Brook is stocked with brook trout each spring. The Forest also includes the 227 acre Watuppa Reservation, the site of annual tribal meetings of the Wampanoag Nation, which belongs to that tribe. Profile Rock, a 50-foot outcropping, shows a profile of what the Wampanoags believe to be Chief Massasoit.
