Scenes from the Cobble Lookout Trail

In late May, I joined Explorer publisher Tracy Ormsbee and Brendan Wiltse for a hike to Cobble Lookout in Wilmington.

During the 2.2-mile round trip hike, Tracy interviewed Brendan for her new Trailblazer column that features people around the Park who are taking leadership roles related to important causes. Brendan is a scientist and an advocate for designating the Boreas Ponds tract in the Central Adirondacks as wilderness. He played a key role in getting young adults involved in the Boreas land classification hearings.

Brendan chose this hike for a place to interview because it’s an easy hike with a big payoff. The vista from Cobble Lookout is often spectacular. There are views of Whiteface Mountain and surrounding peaks. On the day we hiked to the lookout was a bit rainy, and the view was obscured by clouds and fog, but it was still an enjoyable trip. Above are some of the scenes we saw along the way.
