Description

This trail starts off Pine Cobble Road and ascends moderately through an oak forest. It reaches the Class of '98 Trail (on the left) and continues climbing. In a short distance, Bear Spring Spur will be forward and right. While the Bear Spring Spur Trail is shown on the map, it isn't well-traveled or maintained. The main trail climbs past a small spur (on the right) to the summit of Pine Cobble which offers excellent views of the North Adams and Williamstown Valley. The trail ends at the AT.

Taking a left on the AT, you can make a loop with the Class of '98 Trail. You can reach East Mountain (1,929 ft.) by taking the AT to the right, then a short trip on the Bad Weather Trail.
