Bartholomew's Cobble

Bartholomew's Cobble Professional Review and Guide

"Ten miles south of Great Barrington. Three hikes present this outstanding property. Explore cobble, river, meadow, and woods. Special attractions: Cobble outcrops; bird and wildlife watching; nature study; flowering trees, shrubs, and annuals; fall foliage; museums.

Start all hikes from the Cobble Parking Lot, east off Weatogue Road. Find the trailhead kiosk and fee station to the left of the Natural History Center. For the sun-drenched Eaton Trail, bear left (north), ascending a dirt trail framed by cedar and goldenrod to encircle and top the northern cobble. A lofty wooden bench overlooks a horseshoe bend on the Housatonic River and the grassy peninsula of Corbin’s Neck."

Great for birdwatchers, the kids, and those that enjoy strolling through nature. This hike is not challenging although very rewarding. Hulberts Hill is not to be missed. The views are absolutely amazing! We saw some hawks migrating and a birdwatcher we meet up with at the top of the hill saw 2 bald eagles.
