The Hike To Sheldrick Forest In New Hampshire Winds Through An Old Growth Forest

Wandering through the forest in New Hampshire is a great way to enjoy some time outside. And there are plenty of wooded areas to explore. While many of them will do if you’re trying to find some peace and quiet, we especially love this hike which will show you some of the oldest trees in the state. Huge, stately and impressive you’ll want to do this hike over and over again.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!

Head to the town of Milford to get to the Sheldrick Forest Preserve. Once there you’ll go west on Route 101 leading you past the center of Wilton. Turn left on Temple Road after you see Gary’s Harvest Restaurant. Drive down Temple Road for about a quarter of a mile and then bear left to cross the bridge. Make another left onto Town Farm Road. In about 3/4 of a mile, you’ll reach the preserve entrance and parking is in a small field on the left.
