Trail Information:

Tucker Brook Town Forest is 285 acres of mostly forested, rolling terrain, and provides excellent hikes in all seasons.

The Ridge Trail (1.7 mi) connects the two entrances into Tucker Brook Town Forest. Most of the trail is gently rolling with the exception of the steep slope both before and after the trail crosses the brook.

The Falls Loop (0.7 mi) passes Tucker Brook Falls 1, also the remains of human activity to harness the water power for milling lumber 2 & 3. Glacial erratics 4 are boulders deposited as the last glacier retreated 10,000 years ago.

The Forest Trail (0.6 mi) passes thru an area that was timbered in 1986 and is distinguished by the large concentration of young trees of the same age 5.

The Brook Trail ( 0.7 mi) also has evidence of a dam 6.

Please follow the blazes and stay on town land.
