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.

Mt. Greylock is such a great state park that has a friendly, informative visitor center and a wonderful network of hiking trails. The roads are well maintained and there are road signs to warn drivers of potential hikers crossing the road (safety first). The only slightly confusing feature of the trails is that all of the trail markers seem to... More

Came up yesterday for a nice ride for CT! Drove up from the Adams side for the first time in over 15 years. Lots of great viewpoints and overlooks for some great sightlines! Got to the top and walked around for awhile. We were not dressed for hiking so we stayed on flat ground but really enjoyed the foliage at... More

The weather was perfect for a drive up here. The visitor centre recommend some short walks available and we did one en route. We did Rounds Rock which only took 30 minutes. Good viewpoints but a queue for the car park at the top on a busy weekend. The tunnel like effect of the trees with the autumn colour showed... More

Every inch of the 8 Mile drive was worth the trip. Beautiful views on the way and from the top. Lot of hiking trails if you are up to it. Highly recommended. Small entry (parking) fee.

We hiked up the Money Brook Trail, and came down the Hopper. This is a very good way to do it--took about 6 hours, and we saw almost no one except on the top. Parking is at the end of Hopper Road (NOT on the road you drive up one--I was misled by a website). If you don't have a... More

We loved the trail walk to the top. Beautiful scenery to hike through then the monument appears. Its also interesting taking a look into the walker's shelter.

This place is a must stop for me every time, only no time after November because the road to the top in closed. Dogs allowed off leash on trails but once in public areas and parking areas keep on leash and safe :) great peices of history and monuments to enhance the unbelievable views...drive up is steep at times but...
