This is one of the high points of any visit to the Berkshires. At over 3400 feet in elevation it lays claim to being the highest point in Massachusetts. The Appalachian Trail crosses this summit. The visitor center, at the base of the mountain, is a worthwhile stop with a short movie, information and friendly rangers. The drive up the... More

It was beautiful at the top of the mountain. The lodge is not opened in May during the week - just on the weekends. Had lunch up here and enjoyed he views. A great place to go hiking and lots of trails. The information building at the bottom is very informative about the mountain. The drive up to the top... More

I took my two dogs in April and hiked the ~13 mile loop that connects the Money Brook, Appalachian, Hopper, and Haley Trails. Trails are very well marked, but intersect often, so you must be aware of when you should change branches. It was really cool to hike some of the AT (you see one of the Maine-Georgia postings along... More

You can't visit the Berkshires without going to the top of Mount Greylock. If you are a hiker, the Cheshire Harbor Trail is a wonderful way to experience the mountain. It is well marked and maintained. Driving to the top is also an option, and the roads are recently repaved. There are several places to pull over and take pictures,... More

I frequent Mount Greylock by vehicle to the summit, as well as by foot and I am so grateful to have this incredible memory maker in my life! The trails are well marked, very clean and well kept. There are many waterfalls around the base and many overlooks on various trails to the top. The driving road is smooth and... More

Great views from the top, especially if you can climb the tower. The trip up is spectacular and much easier since they fixed the road a few years ago. Have been going up Greylock for 40+ years and I always enjoy the drive and the view.

love the easy drive to the summit and the panoramic views. The little restaurant isn't fancy, but fun to eat at.

Even if you are not an outdoors type of person this is a must stop when in the area. The climb, by foot along the appalacian Trail, or by car is that - a climb. The woods ae thick and filled with lots of critters, including black bears, so hiking should be well planned by folks with experience. Once at... More
