Cobble Lookout

Cobble Lookout

Cobble Mountain is a gentle hike through the woods of the Wilmington Wild Forest. Great for families and pet-friendly, this short 1.3 mile one way hike leads to a huge lookout area with 180 degree views. Off to the right you'll see Whiteface and Esther and to the left farther in the distance (on a clear day) you'll see the Jay Range, Hurricane, and Giant Mountain. Down in the valley you'll catch a glimpse of Santa's Workshop and the town of Wilmington.
