What a view

Beautiful view from the top. Nice drive up and back. We didn't have time to hike here but will probably come back for that.

We drove up the north side and stopped at the top for the view, the tower and a bite to eat. Views were breathtaking. The Tower was closed and the restaurant was good. We are not hikers, so we didn't get to do that aspect, but if we could- we would have!!! trails looked terrific. Drove down the south side... More

We didn't have much time so no hiking, but we drove up to the summit, walked around and stopped in the lodge. Very nice views, the small restaurant at the lodge actually had an impressive menu with some healthy and out-of-the-norm options. $6 to park up there if you're from out of state ($5 if Mass). Worthwhile.

You can either drive to the top or hike to the top. For a mixed adventure you can drive some of the way and hike the rest. It's a great spot and the highest point In Massachusetts. The views are fantastic. You can see parts of of NY, Vermont, and New Hampshire. You can hike parts of the Applachian Trail.... More

Biked up from the North side, which is the steeper of the two sides. Real later that this is the equivalent of a category 1 climb on the Tour De France. It was very difficult, but there were a number of places to safely pull over if you needed to. It took me aprox 1.5 hours from Windsor Lake Park... More

Well worth the trip from Southern CT to check out Mt Greylock. One of the best mountain views in New England, with sweeping views 3,500 ft above the surrounding countryside at the shear drop off. Nice lookout tower at the top, although the views were amazing even without it. A lot of people on their road bikes on the summit... More

Part of the fun of Mt. Greylock is the drive up on a narrow winding road. At the summit, you'll see the tower which will reopen to tourists in 2016. Friends said they had climbed to the top of the tower in the past. On a clear day, you'll be able to see far-away vistas. The lodge just seems to... More

Choice of trails from the Gould Rd. parking area (next to the now off-limits Gould Farm). Follow trail from the parking area (first left through the woods) towards the Bellows Pipe trail (blue markings). Go up Bellows and will come to intersection for the Thunderbolt Trail (advanced hike) or stay on Bellows for a more mellow hike with a few... More

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.
