A charming little walk up to the Madame Sherri foundation. The history behind the Forrest is fun and interesting. This location links up to a much larger network of trails in New Hampshire.

Cool ruin site. Trails connect to Bear Den, Daniels Mountain, Wantastiquet and even Pisgah. We hiked the nearby loop trail (about 3 miles total with the connector). This has a decent climb with it and at least one great viewpoint.

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.
