This wonderful loop trail takes you through bucolic pastures to a pair of ancient resistant bedrock promontories, known as cobbles, with splendid views of Tyringham Valley. After reviewing the information posted on the map kiosk, walk through a wooden gate to your right toward a small red cattle barn and turn left to follow along the edge of an expansive hayfield, where eastern bluebirds raise their young in nest boxes provided for them. After passing through another gate at the foot of the cobble, turn right and follow along a row of venerable sugar maples. Cobble Loop Trail is marked with circular blue-paint blazes on wooden posts, although the mowed trail is easy to follow.
