We hiked 3 mikes in the Madame Sherrie/ann stokes trail on Sunday. Returned to our car with rock thrown through window. Several other vehicles also,broken into and damaged. Quick cash, wallets, and phones were stolen. State Police and chief of west chesterfield were called and were very helpful to,our needs. Just a fair warning. Other than that, it was a... More

We stopped here on the way to visit family. It was always on a list of places I wanted to visit. We arrived here in June, but really would like to go back in the fall. It is a short walk from the immediate parking lot to the ruins. It was fascinating, knowing the story and seeing pictures (prior to... More

Took a short walk to see the castle in the woods, worth the trip to find it. We walked to the top of the staircase.

Great gem of a find off the beaten track, and close to the parking lot. In the New World where public access to castle ruins are hard to come by, I would say it is definitely worth the visit and shouldn't take up more than an hour to soak it in if you are pressed for time. Of course you... More

I was really excited to see the ruined castle, and that was definitely the highlight of the trip. There's lots to climb on and explore. But there are plenty of beautiful trails to hike also. The ones I took were pretty easy walking, and there were chipmunks all over.

the stairs to nowhere were awesome. The foundation of the building still stands. The forest surrounding them are great! I didn't venture too far into the forest, but the stairs were neat! I didn't feel the 'presence' of any spirits however!! I was not looking for that..just the stairs! lol

I found Madame Sherri Forest when looking for interesting places to stop on the way home from Portland, ME. This park has an interesting back story and therefore warranted a stop. Being only twenty minutes off our route we were surprised with how off the beaten path it was. After driving several miles on a winding dirt road we arrived.... More

Madame Sherri's Forrest is a wonderful place to hike during any season. I would recommend Going in the spring through the fall months with children. It is a small easy walk from the parking area to the location of The stone stairway and foundation of Madame Sherri's home. There are other paths for further hiking around the Forrest area and...

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.
