Hiking Trails

Mount Monadnock is one of the most-climbed mountains in the western hemisphere.

The Madame Sherri Forest is named after a former owner, Madame Antoinette Sherri, a Paris-born theatrical costume designer who worked in New York City during the early 1900s.

Two miles of hiking trails wind through upland pine-oak-hemlock forests, fields, old orchards, and silver maple floodplain forest along the Contoocook River. The terrain is relatively flat. Because of the wide variety of habitats, wildlife observation opportunities are excellent at McCabe Forest.
