Mount Greylock is Awesome!

Mount Greylock is a must see! Such beauty, you truly feel like you are on top of the world. The Bascom Lodge is such a special place. Great family trip.

Spent the afternoon hiking on Mount Greylock. We were excited to hike a small part of the Appalachian Trail that intersects the mountain. Incredible view from the top. Don't miss this opportunity.

My son and I have used the backpacking/ camping sites at Greylock on a couple of occasions. They were hike in only sites. So you could only bring in what you could carry. They have environment friendly toilets throughout, and bear proof storage containers for your food at each site. Each site also had a picnic table. That was about... More

Driving up to the summit takes about 20 minutes. The road is beautiful, being recently paved. Make certain to stop at the visitor center to gather information, trail maps and a wealth of informative tips from the employee there. There are several scenic stops along the way up giving you a variety of views from different directions and vantage points.... More

Careful about your hike selection, esp. early in the season. There are a number of trails and views.

There are two entrances to the state park, we went in at the not end and exited at the south. We thought the road on the south side was better. However both take you up a fairly narrow, but just two cars wide, winding road which takes you right to the summit car park. The tower was closed when we... More

We went to watch the sunset. It was a cloudy night so it took away from the experience however it was still a beautiful sight. People bring wine and snacks and go up and watch the sunset. We drove to the top. It takes about 20-30 minutes and there are a bunch of scenic stops all the way. Absolutely worth... More

During the fall foliage season you can't find a better spot to view in the Berkshires colors. Mount Greylock being the highest point in Massachusetts. A perfect spot to relax with glass of wine at the lodge at the peak.

Call in to the visitor centre and collect your information. The roads are really well kept, with lots of overlooks, viewpoints and walking trails. At the top there are terrific views of the foliage.
