The Jones Nose trail was well maintained, but lots of roots and rocks higher up on the Appalachian trail. Lots of mud too. Don't climb this trail after a big rainstorm. It is like walking up or down a stream. The only wildlife we saw the entire day was a bear on the side of the road as we drove... More

Beautiful drive out over the Mohawk Trail, RT 8 to Adams. Had a bit of trouble finding the trail head, but once discovered, the trail was well marked and in pretty good shape. Fun hike up, but no real views until you reach the summit. There is a small waterfall about 3/4 the way up and a wooden bridge to... More

We have ridden our motorcycle up to the summit at Mt Greylock a couple of times. It's worth it every time. When people from other areas come to visit us, we take them on this journey. We ascend from North Adams and the views are spectacular. On one of our journeys I am hoping to see them gliding/parachuting. I have... More

The winding road trip up to the summit of Mt Greylock is worth the effort. It's only a few miles and isn't difficult in dry weather. I believe the access Road remains shut in winter months but it was open mid-May. There's car parking at the summit and plenty of space to picnic up there too, but no facilities. You... More

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

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
