New Hampshire’s Sheldrick Forest Has Some Of The Oldest Living Trees In America

The weather in New Hampshire is unpredictable no matter the season, but that doesn’t mean we can’t explore the outdoors. From coastal hikes to waterfall trails there are so many landscape beauties to take in, we sometimes feel like there will never be enough time to experience it all. That’s why we have a bucket list of some of our favorite spots and this unique forest preserve is on it!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

Sheldrick Nature Preserve is accessible year-round but it’s believed to be best between March and October when the weather is a bit warmer. If you choose to visit in the cold, always be sure to wear the right footwear as conditions can be slippery. We love furry friends, but dogs aren’t allowed here. You can learn more about visiting by checking out the official brochure. To learn more about the Sheldrick Forest Trail check out this page on

We love this forest almost as much as we love waterfalls! If you love them too check out the New Hampshire trail that leads to a staircase waterfall. It’s heaven on earth!
