steep at parts, but good hike.
Great day hike with spectacular views at the top. Convenient parking.
Steep grade on a very well maintained and traveled path. A lot of people. Rocky in spots. Easy parking. Definitely coming back for foliage. Make sure to look both sides.
This is my go to hike. I try to enjoy it weekly. I hike fast to get a good workout I can be up and down in an hour. But generally and an easy pace it takes about 1:45-2 hours. View at the top is worth it. Sunrise can be amazing up there!
Great views at the top.
I love this hike. Nice 2-3 hours with lovely views and just demanding enough to feel good. Do it every time I visit Williamstown.
Accurate rating of moderate difficulty, it was a steady incline the whole way up. I'd call it high-moderate for the steady incline. Trails were extremely well kept and marked all the way up. That is until the peak, there's a sign to stay on trail but then the path at the top to the summit isn't marked anymore. There are a few spots to check out the beautiful views. Great day hike, worth coming back in the fall for the foliage.
Parking was a bit tough, small area but fortunately people were leaving and a couple of spots opened up. Just something to keep in mind.
First time up the pine cobble. hiked up and ran down. Took about an hour. Beautiful trail with awesome views at the summit.
great quick hike with moderate climb. mostly uphill for the entirety. views of Williams view and the range behind it were spectacular. other side of the peak give limited views of North Adams and surrounds. We did it in spring with light foliage. rRecommended. 3 hrs overall.
Excellent hike. views are great once you reach the cobble, would be beautiful in the fall when the foliage is at its best. Take the extra time to walk over to Eph's lookout and the AT.
Unimpressive view. Hike it if you like lots of shaded trail with little variation. Saw some interesting mushrooms and ferns.
Amazing view when you reach Summit! There's a sign near the cliff that says summit 0.1 mi right and Pine Cobble to Appalachian trail 0.5 mi left. We went toward summit which was well worth the uphill hike.
