The Stony Brooke Park Loop at Stony Brooke Park Conservation Area in Suffield, Connecticut is an easy 1.8-mile trail that encompasses the park and features a scenic brook and a small pond.

This trail is close to the center of Suffield, Connecticut. Wanting to do the whole trail through the conservation area as I have dozens and dozens of times before, I took the Remington Road entrance. Admittedly it looks like not a lot of people hike this route because, although it's a fairly flat trail, it was incredibly hard to follow with all the overgrowth. Thankfully my dog seemed to vaguely remember where the trail was. Despite overgrowth during the Summer, this trail is definitely still worth a wander.

The old railroad tracks make a beautiful backdrop/view. In the wintertime there is a 40'x20' shallow pond that freezes over kids (or adults) can skate on.  

This trail is truly a gem in the center of town that is underutilized.

Pets
Dogs are allowed if leashed and their waste must be carried out by the hiker.

Parking
Hikers can find two entrances with spacious parking and based on the experience you want, choose where to park. There is an entrance on Route 75 (41.972945, -72.658696), if you want to just cool off in the brook and take some pretty pictures, go in that way. If you want to hike the path around the whole conservation area, go in through Remington Road - at the parking coordinates provided.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller (Founder & Admin). As the Founder, main contributor, and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my trips with over-detailed write-ups for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, site maintainance, and app development for iOS and Android . I simply ask that if you find MyHikes' trail guides helpful to please consider becoming a Supporter to help keep the site, iOS, and Android apps available to everyone.
