I recently visited Mount Greylock with friends who live in the area. It was a bit late in the day so we drove to the top for the view, and then a beer at the old, stone restaurant/inn. It is stunning and I am told that the hiking is wonderful. Judging by the number of cars and hikers we saw,... More

Surprisingly close to North Adams, but the small sign on Rte 2 is easy to miss! Stop at the lookouts on the way up as the top only offers an east view. $5 (cash) to park at the top, and the small lot gets crowded as the day goes on - come early for the best views before it gets... More

Has a nice trail system to hike to the summit where there is a fantastic view. (You can also just drive to the top!) We had some nice sandwiches and drinks at the lodge at the top.

Stopped at the main visitor center in Lanesborough. The ranger there was very helpful in mapping our trails to the summit. From the visitor car it was 19 miles round trip so we opted to dive 1/2 way and park at campground lot and do an 8 mile round trip hike instead. Well marked trails, very rocky so good shoes... More

really nice views from the summit. definitely worth the drive up. not going to say it rates as one of the seven natural wonders, but if you're in the area it's a nice thing to do.

A loooooooong way up but worth it. Would love to stay overnight in the cabin or at least have dinner overlooking the mountain.

The top of Mount Greylock was beautiful . We loved the illustration they have when you walk up. It's a large model of the mountains with all the trails on it. The tower is beautiful as well. Someone mentioned parking fee, it was only $6 for non MA cars and $5 for MA cars. There's a little café, bathrooms... We... More

had a sunny clear day to take in the views from the top of Greylock. Drive up there was a nice twisty route with occasional views. View from top quite spectacular. Had a quick lunch in the restaurant. Note there is a small parking charge ($10.00) at top. Mount is on hiking trails so lots of small groups of hikers... More

Mt Greylock is the tallest in MA. and has lots of great trails, with many overlooks and waterfalls. The Appellation trail also runs though here, so you can hike all the way over the mountain if you want to. There is a paved road to the top, so if you only want some shorter day hikes, there are plenty of... More

for the day hiker, there are many trails all over the mountain to hike and explore as well as the gorgeous views from the peak.
