Sulpher Springs in Blandford. The Chester Blandford State Forest covers 2,770 acres in both towns established in 1924. The old roads on the Blandford side are the less traveled and the history of the town’s early settlers lie here. Coming in from Beulah Land Road in Blandford where the old road is now discontinued and inside the State Forest, we hiked to the junction of Observation Hill Road where Sulpher Springs can be found at Green Hill. The CCC built a dam here to form a swimming hole for tourists in the 1930s. The spring water was believed to have healing and fountain of youth qualities.

There is no metal detecting allowed on any State Forest property and please leave any great historical finds where you find them for others to enjoy and the historical experts to document. #dcr
