I loved my time hiking to the top of Mt Greylock. The food at the top is Pricey but good. Long Hike so dress warm and cover all areas from deer ticks

Even if you are not an outdoors type of person this is a must stop when in the area. The climb, by foot along the appalacian Trail, or by car is that - a climb. The woods ae thick and filled with lots of critters, including black bears, so hiking should be well planned by folks with experience. Once at... More

I hiked Mount Greylock in October 2015 with my 16 year old son and loved it. MG is in the Berkshire mountains and we were lucky enough to go on a beautiful fall day when leaves were in peak foliage. It was so beautiful. The ride there from the Hartford area was incredible. From Hartford it is about 1 hour... More

Gorgeous place to visit. You can see miles from the summit. Fall foliage was spectacualar. If diving up the parking is limited and they charge to park.

We followed Notch Road from Route 2 to the summit. The parking was full and it was in - out thing as it was the weekend. We had to wait 10 mins to get a spot. There is a war memorial but it is closed till 2016. Views are okay but I have seen better. Fall colors were not that... More

This is a good hike. Gould trail is not a walk in the park, but rather a solid hike, good workout. It is nice to see the change in flora as you ascend. Also in this trail there's a small detour to some small waterfall/running natural water. Nice views at the summit, especially now with the changing foliage.

Our group of 8 seniors hiked up to this highest peak in Massachusetts. It took about 2+ hours to get up and less to get back down. But it is steep. No hard rocks to climb over or around, but continuous steep walking. It starts on an old road, which is a great way to start and end! But you... More

Tripadvisor has these two entries, and I don't know how to distinguish them. FYI, a State Reservation in Massachusetts appears to be the same thing as a State Park. There are great views from the top of the mountain, the tallest in MA. You can also watch hang gliders and paragliders on certain days. Refreshments are available, even dinners. Drive... More
