Notchview Reservation - Windsor State Forest Professional Review and Guide

"In the northwest corner of Massachusetts, the adjoining lands of Notchview Reservation (a property of the Trustees of Reservations) and Windsor State Forest introduce the tranquility of the Hoosac Range. Rich hardwood forests and pine and spruce plantations enfold the area. Sparkling Steep Bank Brook ties together the reservation and state forest lands, ushering hikers between the two sites.

Privately owned Notchview Reservation suggests a per-hiker donation, while the state forest charges a parking fee. This day hike travels between the two properties. Tour mixed woods, plantations, and wet meadow bottoms, crisscrossing Steep Bank Brook to visit the rocky gorge of Windsor Jambs. Special attractions: Tranquil woods; rocky brooks; cascades; gorge; wildlife sightings of turkey, porcupine, and deer."
