Bartholomew’s Cobble Reservation

Bartholomew’s Cobble Reservation Professional Review and Guide

"Long beloved by botanists and fern enthusiasts, the Cobble offers terrific birding and wildflower-viewing opportunities, interesting geology, and fabulous panoramic views from Hurlburt’s Hill.

Check in at the visitor center or, if visiting when the center is closed, examine the kiosk with map at the trailhead to the left. Trail maps are available at the visitor center (both inside and out). Trail intersections are signed. Much of the
route is blazed in yellow. From the kiosk, walk left and follow Eaton Trail up the rocky slope under junipers (a.k.a. eastern red cedars). You are ascending the smaller of two
cobbles, composed primarily of erosion-resistant quartzite rock and softer marble."
