Housatonic Heritage Hike 2019
September 28 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm
Hike Kent Mountain and Cobble Brook Vista Preserves!
Date: Saturday, September 28
Time: 7:00 PM
Location: Cobble Brook Vista Preserve
Address: 26 Studio Hill Circle, Kent
Join us on a hike through Weantinoge’s Cobble Brook Vista Preserve and Kent Mountain Preserve (Kent Land Trust). The trail passes through various natural habitats including meadows, streams, upland forest and ridgeline. Along the hike you’ll discover charcoal mounds from the iron industry age and scenic views of the Housatonic Valley from the top of Kent Mountain.
The trail that connects these two properties is about 2.5 miles long and passes over steep and rocky terrain that would be considered challenging to the experienced hiker.
This hike is presented as part of the Housatonic Heritage walk series, now in its 17th year. This series includes dozens of events that focus on the rich natural and cultural history of Berkshire County, MA and Litchfield County, CT. Click here for a full listing of all 63 hikes.
