Went in June, 2015. Took a more strenuous route. Probably only saw 5 other people on my way to the summit. Encountered waterfalls and streams. Very quiet and peaceful. Nice to relax at the top. If you take the combo trails like I did which were the Hopper, AT, and Money Brook, give yourself about 5 or 6 hours to... More

Took Cheshire Harbor trail to reach top. This trail is easy hike(me being a moderate hiker). Overall time took around 4.5 hours with spending 15 mins at the top. Definitely will go snowshoeing during snow.

Nice drive, probably a strenuous hike. Bring a camera and go on a clear day. Watch out for Google Map directions if you are travelling by car. They can bring you to trail heads, not road entrances for cars

Wonderful panoramic views at many points along the road to the top of Mt Greylock. I went up from the north and then down on the south side. Memorial was closed to go inside, as was the lodge. Road closes Nov 1, so I made it just in time.

It's the highest point, and the vistas are great, but some other views we encountered were better. It's at least ten degrees colder at the summit - and windy!

Best view from mountain view.Even drive to this mountain top is so beautiful. On the way, you can see small waterfalls. When you have time , stop by there and enjoy the view point there.

We had a fabulous four mile hike to the summit of Mount Greylock. The Fall colors on the leaves of the trees were stunning. We even saw glistening frost on the evergreens at the top of the mountain and it was a beautiful site. We also saw the old lodge for the Thunderbolt trail, which was built by the CCC's... More

Drove up to the top of Mount Greylock in mid October. Spectacular views along with peak fall foliage made this a great destination to visit.

It was a nice ride up to the top. The elevation is 3,491 ft. Nice colors in the fall. There are many walking trails, huge monument that you can walk up I believe. It was closed at the time we were there for restoration. It will not be opened until sometime in 2017. There is a lodge on top where... More
