Mill Hollow Brook and Hudson River

This watershed is made up of lands in the northwest corner of the town of Schaghticoke that drain into Mill Hollow Brook, which flows into the Hudson River just south of Washington County. It also includes some lands draining into streams which flow directly into the Hudson River north and south of the mouth of Mill Hollow Brook.

Mill Hollow Brook flows through a steep ravine in an area of soils and bedrock less acidic than most of Rensselaer County. As a result, the stream corridor supports plants adapted to these richer conditions.
