Bartholomew's Cobble is an enchanting nature preserve tucked in the southwest corner of Massachusetts. Five miles of hiking trails take you up to high, open meadows with stunning views,
along the meandering Housatonic River, and through mysterious hemlock forests, home to North America's greatest diversity of fern species. The preserve is also known for its rich bird life, butterflies, wildflowers, moss, and ancient caves.
The Cobble is owned by The Trustees of Reservations, a member-supported, non-profit charitable organization
that preserves landscapes of exceptional scenic, historic, and ecological value in Massachusetts for public use and enjoyment.
The Trustees of Reservations is the oldest statewide land conservation and historic preservation organization in the country.
