Visit the Madame Sherri Forest in Brattleboro

Posted on

forest trail leading into spooky foggy woodsAdd a little mystery when hiking near Brattleboro, Vermont and visit the Madame Sherri Forest. The Ann Stoke Loop Trail offers an easy 2-mile hike through a hemlock forest and leads to the ruins of Madame Sherri’s Castle. Once a grand home built in the 1902’s, that hosted many wild parties in its heyday. Now the mansion’s massive stone staircase reaches only to the treetops and makes for very interesting photographs. After exploring the other remains of the home, extend your day of hiking on other linking trails that lead to wonderful overlooks and views.
