I live here. Any trip to Adams/Berkshires should include a drive up to the summit of Mt. Greylock. There are two access roads and one can drive up one side and down the other. I recommend ascending from the North Adams side for the best views. Take the time to walk into Sperry Campground. The view is worth it. This... More

Driving up Mt Greylock is a serene gentle ride into the past. Unspoiled and very green during the summer, the mountain is a welcoming feature of the Berkshires, and it's highest peak. The visitor center at the bottom is educational and the views near the model are impressive. The Rangers are informative and gracious. You can hike from any point... More

On our way to Vermont we drove over and to the top of Mount Greylock. Very informational visitor's center with movie presentation. Spend couple of hours driving, viewing and enjoying.

Autumn is the best time to hike or drive up to the top of Mt Greylock. Great views and peaceful. Lodge available for food and drinks and restroom facilities.

We went from Texas to the Berkshires to enjoy the fall colors and were truly rewarded with our drive up and over Mount Greylock. We started at the south end at the Visitor's Center. Nice movie presentation for an orientation and interesting displays. Very helpful lady at the desk with lots of brochures and state maps - behind the counter.... More

We drove to the summit. A long beautiful drive, the summit had breathtaking views all around. It is very well marked with historical and location information. It happened to be cold and windy. It was a treat to go into the Lodge for delicious hot soup with freshly baked breads and cookies. Very friendly staff at the Lodge. We also... More

Heard the road was recently redone and it was an easy drive south to north ends. Pick up a driving tour (hidden on the back side of the large display at the visitor center if it's closed) for suggested stops and local history. Good parking. Several easy hikes along with many more rigorous ones. Access to the Appalachian Trail in... More

We drove up the mountain with our young daughter and went for a short hike at the summit. The view is striking and there is a nice lodge with "casual" foods at the summit. We also enjoyed visiting the visitor's center and flying a kite. We'll go back in a heartbeat ... we loved it! Stayed at Mount Greylock Inn... More

The drive up the mountain is a beautiful tree-line road with a few overlooks. And the view from the summit allows you to see quite far. I was surprised to see Mount Wachusett in the east—66 miles away. Unfortunately, for safety reasons, the tower is closed and won’t open until renovations beginning in 2014 are completed.

We wanted to visit the place as soon as we heard it is the highest peak in MA. The surprise element was how dense the mountain was.. the drive up the hill was so nice.. with dense trees on the side.. We just took a short hike after reaching the summit and it was good. Well maintained..
