Shieling Forest Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"A multifaceted, enjoyable walk through an intriguing range of sites with monolithic glacial boulders. Well-designed and easily walked, this varied trail winds through a forest with a broad range of fascinating sites for its relatively small acreage. The forest was donated to the state in 1980 by Elizabeth Yates McGreal, a prolific, well-known writer and resident of Peterborough for many years.

The clearly marked trail was conceived for educational outings through inspiring woodland. It is a fine introduction for children to the variety of nature. In fact, one day we met two families we knew having a good time seeing the old trees, meandering Dunbar Brook, giant glacial erratic boulders, a rock quarry, a wildflower garden, and other sites."
