The Epsom Town Forest consists of over 460 acres of forestland which is protected from future development. The goal is to promote conservation, education, forest and wildlife management and outdoor recreation on this property for all individuals.
The initial 318 acres of the property was acquired for the town through the Land Conservation Investment Program and the conservation easements granted to the town by Alice and Cyril Smith of their property on Sanborn Hill including Brush Hill and Dr. Ed Jackson and his property which abuts the Town Forest on Griffin Road. The Town Forest acreage was increased 140 acres through the generous donation of Massachusetts Scoutmaster Joe Neville.
