Windsor County

Windsor.jpegIf you find yourself wandering down to southern Vermont, be sure to keep a watchful eye for the many wonders of Windsor County. Boasting an area of 977 square miles this ‘Birthplace of Vermont’ features many interesting trails, historical sites, and beautiful landscapes. 

The county has no lack of natural areas hosting a number of state and national parks. The county holds the entirety of Mash-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Part, and carries portions of the Green Mountain National Forest and White Rocks National Recreation Area. 

A popular place to bike? Look no further than the Toonerville Rail-Trail. This trail spans 3.1 miles from the downtown business district of Springfield southeast to the western bank of the Connecticut River at the Vermont–New Hampshire border. This asphalt trail is safe for biking, walking, running in the warmer months, and is popular for cross-country skiing when the Vermont snow is abundant.
