Sucker River to Fox Farm, 5 miles
Our Fall Colors series continues with a 5-mile adventure with SHTA volunteer Steve Coz through inland forests, just as they reach peak fall colors. Cross the Sucker River on an A-frame bridge, hike over a large beaver dam, and cross your fingers for a rare moose sighting – there’s plenty of moose sign here.  And who knows – you might even see Birchy the Beaver too. Meet at Fox Farm Road Trailhead.
