About Mahanna Cobble Trailhead
Mahanna Cobble is a reserve and hiking area managed by Berkshire Natural Resources Council. The Mahanna Cobble Trail leaves from the trailhead and eventually arrives at expansive scenic views of the surrounding mountains. After leaving the parking lot, visitors will follow signs and hike across the ski trails at Bousquet Mountain. These trails are used throughout the wintertime, and hikers should exercise caution when enough snow has fallen.
Soon, visitors will leave the ski area and enter dense woodland. The trail steeply climbs throughout this section, bringing visitors to a rocky outcropping with excellent views of the Berkshires. When the weather cools in autumn, these mountains burst with the yellows and oranges of fall foliage. Visitors can picnic and relax while overlooking the gorgeous mountainside.
Then, beyond this lookout, the path will end at the Yokun Ridge Trail. Visitors can follow this trail to additional scenic views at Pleasant Valley Wildlife Sanctuary and, ultimately, the Town of Lenox. In the summertime, hikers can also head north toward Bousquet Mountain and access a view of Pittsfield and other Western Massachusetts towns.
Visitors will find parking in a large lot at Bousquet Mountain. There, an informational kiosk provides trail maps and helps guide visitors to the pathway.
