Sprague Brook Park Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Covering more than 2,200 acres in southern Erie County, Sprague Brook is an L-shaped park that takes its name from the narrow waterway that cuts across its midsection. The campground is divided into three loops of 30 to 50 sites; each group has a restroom. Only sites 1–30, which are closest to the tennis courts and a few picnic pavilions, have electric hookups. Trails in the park are designated as multiuse, so hikers and mountain bikers must share the routes that weave through eastern cottonwood, sycamore, black walnut, red pine, and Norway spruce. In terms of wildlife, campers should keep their eyes open for porcupine, red fox, whitetailed deer, and snowshoe hare, and listen for pileated woodpeckers, robins, and frogs. Several miles southeast of the park in Arcade, the Arcade and Attica Railroad offers various themed scenic train rides—a fun excursion for kids—beginning in late May."
