Vinnie left a treat for your dog if you bring him letterboxing.
Travel north 4 mi. on Rt. 97 from Rt. 6 in Hampton. (about 3 mi. north from Hampton Center). Directly across from Kimball Hill Rd., which is on the right, marks the entrance to H.E. Preston Nature Sanctuary on the left. There are some small signs on the trees on the right hand side on entrance. Parking is along Rt. 97 and is on grassy shoulder. Enough room for several cars.This piece of land is a Joshua’s Trust acquisition.
As legends are told, Woodelves live in a quiet part of the forest with water near by. Hampton Woodelves live not quite at high elevation and yet never at river elevation either. As with most Woodelves, they sprinkle the stars around at dusk for dreams to be had and collect them at dawn for another night. Thus the magic hours for Woodelves is Dusk & Dawn and their magic color is Yellow. jurneez woodelves maintain a little shelter off the trodden path blending well with nature.
To start, walk down the 300 foot dirt road from Rt. 97 to a large field. Go to the right far corner and you’ll see where the trail once was, now clearly marked as private property. Turn left and continue along the back line of the field. Heading south. A little ways down you’ll find a huge yellow blaze sign about 1 ½ feet long by 5 inches wide, (says nothing) on a tree and a yellow blaze painted on a rock. Go through the stone wall here. Follow path, it turns to right and left, winds around through woods. Goes through a second stone wall as it turns left. As path takes a sharp turn to left, look for a big tree on left, then a downed tree on right, continue on.
At third stone wall following yellow dot trail turn right and go down hill. At river turn left with river on your right, continue on trail. Enjoy the river. It’s name is “Little River”. Then head uphill away from river. Look for the Woodelves retreat which is a 2 foot wide, 20 foot fallen tree on the left. About 20 feet up off the path. Woodelves like to bury their treasures in the East end of places. You'll find their treasure there! Follow the trail back up to field and then cross field, slightly turning left to the starting 300 foot dirt road which you won't be able to see until you're over the hill.
The Woodelves always suggest you take a treat for your dog if you’re traveling with one.
