Some of the best views in the local area as far as I know. Glad to have found this hike!

Great short hike. It's steep at the beginning but pays off with huge views.

My favorite hike in Connecticut. Rarely busy and always so much to see. Great views at the top and plenty of places to eat a snack in solitude.

Really nice varied hike that offers a few interesting challenges in spots, and great views at the top of Cobble Mtn. One of the best I’ve done in the area. Lightly trafficked on a beautiful fall Sunday.

Did the blue loop counterclockwise starting from the south parking area, which allowed us to scramble up the steepest part of the hike to the top of Cobble toward the end. Very cool. Recommend starting counterclockwise from the north parking area so you can do the scramble toward the beginning. Scramble section is not pet/kid friendly, but the rest is.

Excellent hike! I read the reviews prior to insure my dog could handle the terrain. I took the advice to hike it counter clockwise so I would hike up the scramble instead of down which was much easier. I highly suggest only bringing your dog if they are athletic and medium to small size. There is a spot that is a sheerish drop and involves some technical skill but was manageable because I hike my dog with a ruffwear harness that has a handle and he is trail savvy and waited for me to get into position to guide him down. A group suggested I was hiking the wrong direction but since I was alone I found it much easier to lower my 50lb cattle dog down rather than trying to lift him up that section. All in all great views of the valley, lightly trafficked, challenging and a good workout!!!

Be careful following the blue trail coming down cobble mountain lookout. It is very steep and rocky, but super fun!!! There is one part where it is about a 7ft vertical drop, which was really tricky to get down with my dog. Luckily a fellow hiker helped out, it would've been near impossible by myself.

Props to trail maintenance!!! The beginning of the blue trail was hard to see with all the leaves covering it but it was so well marked. The blue blazes marked the trail about every fifty feet.

The views at the top were stunning. Well worth the effort!
