My boyfriend and I went for a hike around here and enjoyed ourselves. The castle remnants are really cool and the hiking trails around them are well marked, moderate at times, but are worth the lookout points. I would suggest having bug spray as the...More

The drive from Brattleboro was beautiful and the site was calm, although more climbing than anticipated on trails to enjoy the vistas. I would love to learn more about Madame Sherri and plan to return to the park.

Reading the history of Madame Sherri and her secluded home is as fascinating as the visit to the site. The architectural ruins are very intriguing and just a short walk from the parking area; however, plan to spend more time to hike the trail network...More

This is a beautiful, moderately strenuous hike from Chesterfield, NH to a gorgeous summit overlooking Brattleboro. The history of Madame Sherri is fascinating.

There is a moderate, one mile trail that leads to Indian Pond, a magical isolated place. From there one can head west for one mile to the top of Wantasiquet Mountain that overlooks the town of Brattleboro, Vt and has a great vista of Southwest...More

A charming little walk up to the Madame Sherri foundation. The history behind the Forrest is fun and interesting. This location links up to a much larger network of trails in New Hampshire.

I was visiting friends in Keene, New Hampshire and this was a great little activity to do. The Forest is off the beaten path for sure. The parking lot is tucked back a bit and we actually missed it the first time by. The cell...More

Yes, the ruins of the house are interesting and sort of spooky, but the hiking is the best part. We did the longer leg (1.5 miles) of the Ann Stokes trail going out from the parking lot and came back the short leg (0.5 miles)...More

Type "41 Egypt Rd. West Chesterfield, NH" into your GPS. It's not there, but that'll get you to where you can find the sign and the parking lot.
