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.

There are different levels, I have 6&8 yrs old. I would not recommend to do 6 miles with young kids. but there are sections that they should be able enjoy. It is free. nice and clean visitor center.

This is just a lovely spot to hike, picnic or just hang out. Took a walk with friends the other day and remembered how truly beautiful it is. This is not the largest, or biggest place around around but one of the prettiest and easy to get to places. I enjoy the native beauty and the lack of commercialism here... More

I was extremely pleased with my camping trip to Mt. Greylock, which offers a number of primitive campsites for day hikers or AT through-hikers. As a citizen of MA for 20+ years I can say with confidence I have not experienced better views or hiking anywhere within the state. Also, I arrived to this campsite far too late in the... More
