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.

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.
