One of New England’s unique natural places, with an abundance of rare and endangered plants and animals. Bartholomew's Cobble is a special place, not just within the confines of the Berkshires, but anywhere. It sits upon bedrock created from ancient seas and continental collisions as much as a half billion years ago. Today the unusual rocks, soils, and climate have made the cobble an oasis of biodiversity. Trails that wander up hills, through pastures, and along the banks of the Housatonic River are replete with the wildlife and wildflowers that make Bartholomew’s Cobble attractive and fascinating. This trip guides you through the cobbles and along a beautiful walk through riparian forest.
