Absolutely beautiful. The whole area is beautiful. Not to mention it is pretty close to where my son is attending college so.....The memorial tower was closed but the views from the summit were breathtaking. The weather was sunny but hazy. Would have awesome to see on a clear day. Will definitely go back some day.

We drove to Mt Greylock from Williamstown and be aware the Sat Nav took us down Quarry Road, talk about off roading....avoid going that way. We didn't go for the hiking just to walk around the top for the views which are stunning, and so peaceful up,there. A photographers dream. The Tower is closed to 2016 for renovation. Be aware...

We loved our visit to Mt. Greylock. The views from the top are spectacular! Photo ops abound! The drives up and down are well paved and easy to negotiate. However, beware if your GPS suggests W. Mountain Rd.-- go a different way. The film in the visitors' center was well done and very informative. We are not hikers, but the... More

Perfect fall day for this trip. Started out with a visit to the fabulous new visitors center. Very informative ranger gave us great suggestions for hikes we wanted. We opted for the Sperry Rd 3 mile walk to some beautiful views. This was a dirt road and relatively flat walk with camping sites alo ng the road. We then drove... More

On a recent trip through the Berkshire Mountains, the wife and I drove to the top of Mount Greylock, the highest mountain in Massachusetts. Drive to the top was well worth the trip. The panoramic view was fantastic, with the town of Adams in view. Unfortunately for us, the tower at the summit was closed for the season. The trip... More

Hiked many of the different trails, although some of the trails were a little tricky to navigate for an inexperienced hiker the views were great. The view from the summit was wonderful.

We drove to the top of Mount Greylock and walked around the area and the monument. We were there on a beautiful day and the view was great. Had a sandwich in the restaurant at the top and it was decent.

The hiking was great, however the trail maps didn't indicate distances or difficultly level so it is hard to gauge how much time you need and how hard of a hike it will be. A little tricky with kids.
