Get Back to Nature
Bartholomew's Cobble is home to one of
North America's greatest diversities of fern species and their allies,
as well as abundant woodland wildflowers. The Reservation is named for
its two rocky knolls that rise above the Housatonic River, and the property's magnificent 239 acres includes a variety of terrain with majestic views of the region, lots of wildlife and 5 miles of moderate hiking trails. Bring a picnic and let the kids run wild! Paddlers bring your canoes and kayaks to explore the marshlands.
