Featured Hike: Blueberry Cobbles, New Russia

blueberry cobbles mapBlueberry Cobbles (2,053 feet), part of the Giant Mountain Wilderness, is a lookout 2.2 miles from the trailhead, on the East Trail to Giant Mountain.

From the trailhead, you won’t be on the level for very long before the trail starts a serious ascent to high country. The trail sweeps around a couple unnamed little knobs before making a final push to the first viewing point at 1.6 miles. Just past here, there is another view to the right at 1.8 miles and then an intersection with the Blueberry Cobbles Cut-off Trail on the right. Bear left and continue slightly uphill to blueberry heaven and some additional nice views.

East Trail to Giant Trailhead Parking Area is on Route 9, 6.8 miles north of Exit 30 on the left. (44.1499° N, 73.6268° W).
