Cobble Lookout Trail, located in the Wilmington Wild Forest is a 1.3-mile trail which closely follows the contour across the southwestern face of the Stephenson Range to a large rocky ledge.
The lookout offers great views of nearby Whiteface Mountain and much longer views across the Ausable River drainage to the Jay Mountains, Hurricane Mountain, and many other peaks. The trail passes an old rock quarry approximately 0.2 miles from the trailhead which provides the trail its name.
The Cobble Lookout Trailhead is on Gillespie Drive (aka Franklin Falls Road) (N 44.4040°; W 73.8789°)
Featured trails are recommended by DEC.
