With rain on tap for tomorrow I wanted to get out and hike a bit today so headed east into the Berkshires to do a couple of smaller hikes with nice views. My first stop was in the town of Cheshire where the Appalachian Trail runs, to visit the Cheshire Cobbles, a large rocky outcrop with fantastic westerly views. The AT trailhead for this hike has very limited parking on a residential street, so I opted for a different route up the mountain which eventually meets up with AT further up the mountain, on the way to the Cobbles.
After climbing up and around the large cobble area, a side trail leads to an opening on top of the cobble.
Here is the rocky area that you step out onto from the woods.
