Point of Interest: Cobble Lookout Trail
Location: Wilmington, New York, United States of America
As I look at my post regarding the hike from Fira to Oia in Greece, I thought I would add some more potential hikes and one that we did while in Lake Placid was the Cobble Lookout Trail which is located in Wilmington, New York, just roughly 10 minutes from Lake Placid itself (which oddly, I don't recall if we actually saw).
Cobble Lookout Trail is a 1.3 mile hike built in 2014 which took us roughly 45 minutes each way. The trail itself has some ups and downs, but in general, not a very difficult hike. For the most part, you are trekking through forests until you reach the end where you get a great view of the surrounding area (provided that the weather is clear when you go).
There is no cost to go and there is a small parking lot right where you will see a sign, however, we did notice that there are some people who just park on the side of the road if the parking lot is full.
Have a look at the pictures and see for yourself if you think you would be interested in this hike.
Come back next week for another Past Point of Interest!
