Guided Pine Cobble Interpretive hike
The Williamstown Rural Lands Foundation announces a guided natural history hike of Pine Cobble on Sunday November 3 beginning at 1 PM to traverse the new section of the Pine Cobble trail and some of the lesser known areas of its Pine Cobble conservation property. Hikers should meet at the Pine Cobble trail head on Pine Cobble Road, off North Hoosac Road in Williamstown.
The hike will be led by geoscientist David Dethier. Pine Cobble has a unique geology, and the hike will feature a visit to an area of rock ledges, as well as Bear Spring, traversing two ancient shorelines, one formed by Lake Bascom a mere 14,000 years ago, and the other a tropical shoreline from approximately 500 million years ago, when Williamstown lay closer to the equator! The hike is moderately strenuous and will last approximately three hours. Sign-up is suggested.
The Williamstown Rural Lands Foundation is a non-profit member-supported land conservation trust working to conserve the special places of the Williamstown area. Pine Cobble is its largest preserve.
