Last summer, we took a beautiful hike up the pine cobble trail in Williamstown, Massachusetts. It was communicated to us as being a “mild walk over a ridge.” We had visions of it being a quick up and down again- but it ended up being much more of a hike than we expected. ( I think it took about 4 hours total.) Part of the hike was along the Appalachian trail. This part of the AT was unknown to me as I have ever only encountered the section in the presidential range of the White Mountains. I was pleased to find that it was well marked and full of interesting thru- hikers who were all very friendly. We had a blast and it was a lovely adventure. I wanted to show some pictures of this wonderful day.
The view from the top of the ridge was spectacular. Below you can see Williamstown itself.
Finally, on the return down the other side of the ridge we came across an old mill pond. The sound of the water running in the woods along the trail was so peaceful. If you are ever in the Williamstown area and looking for a (relatively) easy day hike I totally recommend it. Have a week great everyone!
