Within the boundaries of Wilton, there are numerous rivers, ponds, and reservoirs where you can throw your line in and try your luck.  While brook trout is the most common around here, you may also find bass, perch, pike, crappie, pickerel, and a few more depending on where you go!

Hiking trails

Hiking the Heald Tract
Whether it be the Heald Tract, Sheldrick Forest, Frog Pond, or any one of a number of other trails in town, Wilton has it all. Explore the trails on horseback, snowshoe, cross-country skis, or by foot and enjoy all that the woods of Wilton have to offer!

Information on Sheldrick Forest (Nature Conservancy)
 
The Wilton Conservation Commission has also published a trail map for both the Heald Tract and Sheldrick Forest, which can be obtained at Town Hall.

Two other popular trail destinations are Garwin Falls and Horseshoe Falls. While both are on private property, the owners allow visitors to enjoy the natural wonders of these two sites.  However, there are significant parking restrictions in place, so please visit the Wilton Parks and Recreation site for more details.


Riverwalk


Wilton RiverwalkThe Wilton Riverwalk offers a lovely stroll along Stony Brook right off of Main Street by the Police Station.

Stop first by the Kiosk and view rotating displays about Wilton town history and natural resources.  Sit for a while on one of the memorial stone benches, and admire the banners designed by local artists.  If you are lucky, maybe one of our local blue herons will fly by!


Scouts

Sledding


Carnival HillCarnival Hill may be a hidden gem when it comes to sledding, but it is a gem nonetheless!  Long, wide, and steep, it provides great runs for kids of all ages.  When Wilton held winter carnivals ('26 to '36), the toboggan chute was a quarter mile long and passed through three towns (Wilton, Milford, and Lyndeborough).  For those brave enough to go all the way to the top, the panoramic view is spectacular and the ride down is thrilling!  Located just North of the elementary school on Whiting Hill Road.

Snowmobile trails
