Sucker Brook Trail - West Canada Lake Wilderness
This lovely and gentle trail is a delight from the very beginning. Here all generations may wander through true old-growth forest that includes impressive hemlocks, yellow birch, red maple and red spruce. Smaller beech and balsam fir may be seen as well. Shrubs include hobblebush and mountain maple; colorful fungi and native wildflowers dot the forest floor. One or two soggy places add beauty and diversity, but may involve a wet crossing in the spring. West Canada Lake Wilderness is part of Adirondacks Park. This section of old growth is part of the Squaw Peak to Blue Ridge tract measured in thousands of acres.
