History. It’s what keeps generations of New Hampshirites connected to those who came before. It’s also what helps us move forward, learning from mistakes of the past and making improvements for the future. One of the best storytellers is mother nature. Showing us ancient lands and lakes, she’s always reminding us why it’s important to look after our land and wildlife. A great way to see just how far back New Hampshire goes is by turning to mother nature and this natural area with some of the oldest trees in the country.
To get to Sheldrick Forest Preserve from the town of Milford, head west on Route 101 past the center of Wilton. Make a left on Temple Road just after Gary’s Harvest Restaurant. Continue on Temple Road for just over a quarter of a mile before bearing left to cross a bridge. You’ll then turn left onto Town Farm Road. Drive for another 3/4 of a mile and you’ll reach the preserve entrance. You’ll find parking is in a small field on the left.
