Sudden Regional Forest

There is a well developed trail system throughout Sudden Regional Forest including a boardwalk through the wetland. There is a relatively large parking lot at the Spragues Road entrance which is the primary location for visitors.

This Regional Forest comprises a variety of site types and contains several significant species of flora and fauna. Moraines provide a series of hills and valleys with small ponds and vernal pools being found in the valleys and mixed hardwood forests on the hillsides and hilltops. There are several conifer plantations which are well established and which provide habitat for a variety of bird species. There is a well developed network of trails that covers the entire forest and is well used by recreational walkers and educational groups.
