We happened to visit & hike the Ann Stokes Loop after a lot of rain, so the trail was particularly swampy and buggy. Much of the trail is made from run-off areas, so that didn't help. Overall, it's a nice place to visit (the parking...More

Dirt roads to get there but easy. The story and the ruins are fantastic to see. A shame how it came about though. Also, it has a number of nice nature walks.

Enjoyed reading about Madame Sherri, seeing the ruins of her home, and hiking the Anne Stokes Trail. It was a nice hour long hike, sometimes wet, and some rocky spots as well. The views at the top are beautiful! Bring water and bug spray!

My boyfriend and I went for a hike around here and enjoyed ourselves. The castle remnants are really cool and the hiking trails around them are well marked, moderate at times, but are worth the lookout points. I would suggest having bug spray as the...More

The drive from Brattleboro was beautiful and the site was calm, although more climbing than anticipated on trails to enjoy the vistas. I would love to learn more about Madame Sherri and plan to return to the park.

Type "41 Egypt Rd. West Chesterfield, NH" into your GPS. It's not there, but that'll get you to where you can find the sign and the parking lot.
