Tucker Brook Town Forest is a 258 acre conservation area with many multi-use recreation trails. Tucker Brook runs through the property and the trails cross the brook at various points. The forest has many wetlands and White Pine groves. Be sure to see the Tucker Brook Falls and look for sections of trail along the brook that have many glacial erratics. The trails are mostly single track and hilly. There are few technical spots, but all are walkable. Some of the trails are marked while others are not. If you get lost, remember that Savage Road runs to your west and Route 101 bypass is to your east. The trails all end up on local roads close to where you parked. In all there are about 10 miles of trails at Tucker Brook.
The town forest is open to hunting. Be sure to wear orange in the fall. Please be respectful to others using the trails. The town forest joins mainly parcels of private land. Please be sure to stay off of land that is posted no trespassing.
