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.

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.
