Hikes & Walks

Pine Cobble Trail

Pine Cobble (1,894 feet), to the northeast of Williamstown, offers one of the finest panoramic views of the Hoosic River valley.

This steep rocky hike is a favorite with many Williams College students. The word “cobble” refers to the exposed outcropping of quartzite bedrock that is the destination of most of those who use the trail. On a clear day, the outcrop is easily visible from the valley floor, several miles away.

1.6 miles to Pine Cobble, 2.1 miles to Appalachian Trail.
