Description

The Sucker Brook Hollow Country Park is named after the Sucker Brook River which runs under the first foot bridge on the trail. Shortly after crossing this bridge you will come across a shorter second foot bridge over a basin which once held the Sucker Brook until a severe storm caused it to jump its banks in 1985 to where it is today. This caused significant erosion in the surrounding area. In 2003 the town hired an engineering firm to develop plans to help stabilize the channel. The project was completed in 2008 and included re-vegetating the area, a new stone lined channel, and a new flood plain.

Large and majestic beech, white pine, and maple trees can be seen along the trail giving clues as to where the now forested landscape used to be wide open pastureland. From the parking area, it is just over one mile to the viewpoint on Five Tree Hill. The trail connects to the Five Tree Hill Trail and eventually to the Schmoker Connection and Mud Pond Conservation Area.
