Deep in the rolling hills of the Berkshire highlands, Windsor State Forest's cascading waterfall at Windsor Jambs stands out for its spectacular beauty. Windsor Jambs Brook plunges through a 25-foot-wide gorge, with 80-foot-high granite walls rising on either side; a beautiful and refreshing place to visit.
The popular day-use area along the Westfield River offers a 100-foot sandy beach for swimming with wooded picnic sites. 24 limited-service campsites are also available (no showers or flush toilets). Trails and old dirt roads that wind through the "The Bush" are favored by hikers, cross-country skiers and snowmobiles. Fishermen and hunters are also welcome.
