Brochure InfoWindsor State Forest's 1,825 acres is a refreshing getaway in summer and a snowy wonderland in winter. The state forest was created in 1924 from what was considered "wasteland," cut over forests on former farmland. It was conserved to grow marketable timber. Today it continues to serve as a working forest while also offering recreation. In the 1930's the Civilian Conservation Corps developed the state forest, including the Steep Bank Brook Picnic Area.Brochure Info - OrientationA highlight of this state forest is Windsor Jambs, a spectaular 80-foot-deep granite gorge with stunning rapids and waterfalls.
