About Windsor Jambs

The Windsor Jambs are located in the Windsor State Forest and can be accessed from a large parking lot on Schoolhouse Road in Windsor, Massachusetts. From the parking lot, a trailhead for Jambs Trail leads into the forest and runs alongside the Windsor Jambs Brook. After a short distance, visitors reach Windsor Jambs, where they can see and listen to the brook cascading between 80-foot-high granite walls. Viewers can continue along the Jambs Trail, which gradually slopes downward and brings hikers closer to Windsor Jambs Brook. From there, visitors can potentially feel the water as the brook continues to rush and splash over its rocky streambed. Wading in the brook may be possible at some points, but is dangerous and only permitted if denoted on the Massachusetts DCR Windsor State Forest webpage 

While the Windsor Jambs are spectacular, they are just one feature of Windsor State Park. With large open fields, picnic tables, and miles of trails, the Western Massachusetts park offers additional hiking and outdoor recreation opportunities. Of course, the Jambs are the main attraction for many visitors, and for good reason. The Windsor Jambs are a perfect destination for experiencing the serenity and remarkable beauty commonly accompanying outdoor excursions and hikes in the Berkshires.  

Prospective visitors can refer to this Massachusetts DCR page for information regarding current park closures and updates.
