We spent a week in the birkshires with our own family and our extended family. We went on many excellent hikes and little adventures. Today we visited at Bartholomew's cobble and had a wonderful day. We arranged a private canoe trip with Rene who was simply wonderful. We had a lot of fun canoe the river, learning about various aspects... More

We were last here 20 years ago with 3 teenagers. They're grown and gone, but the Cobble remains an outdoors and hiker's delight. Easy trails along riparian woods and pasture, with plenty of geology to entrance those devotees as well. Bring mosquito repellent during summer, and take time for the tiny museum at the entrance. Thumbs up!

A few slightly steep ups-and-downs, but they are short. This is an easy relaxed walk thru woods and fields and along the Housatonic River. Interesting rock formations, lovely ferns and spring wildflowers. Beautiful bird songs!

Peaceful, quiet hiking trails. A great trip for school kids. Rene is an awesome guide and fun. Don't miss the nearby Ashley House and its fantastic role in American History. I've become enamored of the Mumbet story.

Great outdoor place. Must climb Hubert's Hill: there is a fantastic sight at the top. Operated by the trustees of reservations: if you are a member there is no fee.

I grew up down the street and there is nothing like Bartholomew's Cobble. Good varied terrain for hiking, and the view at the top of the Vista is breathtaking. Must see if you're in Southern County.

One of the Trustees sites, this one will take you over hills, along watercourses, through fields and into valleys. Moderate/easy difficulty. It's a nice stop on your way to or from Great Barrington.

I am an avid hiker and there are so many up here in the Berkshires! One of my favorites is Hurlburts Hill @ Bartholomews Cobble in Sheffield,MA. It is a quick, exhilarating hike to the top of one of the sweetest panoramic views up the valley! I enjoy bringing my guitar up there and singing at the top of the... More

A cobble, in this part of New England, is a limestone outcropping. Cobbles can be larger or smaller: this one is larger. It juts out into the Housatonic river and features a number of hiking trails, none of which is very challenging, although in rainy or icy weather you have to be a little careful. But all of them are... More

We were really excited to come here and see the cobble that looks amazing from pictures. The guy at the info was very nice, helpful, gave recommendations of which path to hike on (5.5 year old and 1.5 who doesn't like to sit in his stroller...). Could have been beautiful if it weren't for the insane mosquitoes...I wish we had... More
