This being my forth trip to the top of Greylock is as amazing as the first. The view makes me breathless. The wild flowers and waterfalls along the way up are always pleasant, along with the scenic pullovers. There are many trails along the way to really encounter the flora and fauna, we saw a porcupine on the side of... More

We decided to hike several shorter trails rather than hike straight to the summit. First trail was Rounds Rock. There were two vistas and the site of a plane crash. Next we chose Jacobs Nose. This was more strenuous but well worth the effort. Last was Money Brook Falls. Short .8 mile trek in very steep but the best. You... More

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

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.
