Autumn visit and we drove to the top of the mountain. Absolutely superb. Amazing views and an easy road. Lots of spots to stop. Great use of anyone's time.

Perfect place for leaf pipping and hiking. Beautiful. The views are amazing both along the drive and along the hike. Mount Greylock is even a part of the Appalachian trail.

Nice ride to the summit where the views are great. The tower was not open due to repairs but I knew this ahead of time. There is a visitor center at the bottom of the summit road that had some good information.

We drove the 8 miles up. Saw a few vistas. Probably best if you are a hiker. Most of the winding road is within trees so you really do not see much. Leaves poor at this time.

We stayed on top of Mt. Grelock two nights but rarely saw the views as the mountain was in fog the whole time we were there. The observation tower is closed for repairs, long-term.

Beautiful drive up to the top of Mount Greylock. We had a spectacular drive on a prototypical sunny New England fall day with leaves turning colors falling from the trees. Beautiful vistas and winding roads

At 3,491 feet, Mount Greylock (Berkshire Mountains) is the highest mountain in Massachusetts. We enjoyed the drive to the summit, admiring the lovely fall foliage. You do have to watch for hikers and bicyclists (yes, they pedal up that mountain!) as you drive the twisting...More

Not really due to the path of the eclipse.....Because you had go view it through v. dark glasses, the views were just as good at lower elevations...

There was a dog on our corridor there, and it was a problem as the dog barked every time one of us went down the hall to our rooms.

We just used Google maps, but we have a good nose for direction. Once you're on the road to the summit, there's nowhere else to go. Same thing coming down.
