Beautiful moderate hike with cool ruins!

This was a great way to spend a couple hours. Cool story and background, and the ruins are still there to explore. Really great views and natural exploration options.

Hike to ruins was a short 5 minute walk from the parking area. Good to explore with kids. We continued on from the house ruins to the Ann Stokes Loop. It was a 0.5 mile hike to Indian Pond. Continuing on the loop the trail becomes narrower and steep with short switchbacks up a 200 foot incline to the overlooks.... More

We found out about Madame Sherri Forest by searching for walks/hikes around Brattleboro. This was a must because it has the ruins of Madame Sherri's castle. We came via the Gulf Rd. We drove slowly and we were treated to 4 roadside waterfalls. It was a bright but cold day when we arrived and no one else was in evidence.... More

Fun to take photos on the remaining stairs and foundation of her castle (after fire in the 60's). We visited in mid-October-leaves past peak but still very pretty. With the fallen leaves covering the trail it was difficult to figure out the way to go but fun trying to find way around. Might be a bit too much for kids... More

We had a short drive to a lovely forest with wonderful autumn foliage. We walked to see the ruins of Madame Sherri's home.

There are really two attractions here (at least). For the hikers, there are several trails to take you into the New Hampshire forests. One leads to the top of Wantastiquet for a beautiful view of Vermont. We took the Ann Stokes loop which first leads to a beautiful view at the top of East Hill and then to Indian Pond.... More

Great little adventure if your looking for something to do for an hour or so. It's marked pretty well now and google maps will bring you to the spot (Across from Egypt Rd). The castle part is no more than 100 yards from the parking lot if you don't want to hike, take a RIGHT at the fork after the... More

It was a really cute walk for us, we had three young children and they all made it to the top. The pond at the top of the hill was frozen, so they had a blast throwing rocks on it and we even tried to skate at "our own risk" :-)

Easy hike that begins with the famous ruins. It's an unmarked trail, but easy to figure out (most of the time). Completely covered by tree canopy, so great for sunny days as you will be in the shade the whole time. But that also means no great views from the "top."

Thank Ruth N
