20 minutes from our resort and went a few times. Caught the most amazing sunset I have ever seen from the top. A sight to NOT miss while visiting the area. You can drive in from two sides. The hairpin turns amazing.

An easy drive to the top of the mountain but there are not too many places from which to see the view because of the trees. Even at the top, during the lush season, views were hard to come by. If you like trees, this is the place to go.

Made a visit here in June. Fantastic! Views are amazing, the hiking is a bit challenging, but in no way overly technical. The camping was great, you do have to carry everything in as there is no car access, but it is a straight easy hike.

My wife and I visited with our grandson and his girlfriend. We all agreed we were glad we took the winding road to the summit. The views were spectacular! There is a restaurant at the top that is a good place for a light lunch - limited menu but good food at reasonable prices. You have to pay for parking... More

A nice mix of trails from aggressive to easy. Hike in the footsteps of Thoreau. Good camping at Hidden Valley Campground. Short drive to Tanglewood or The Clark. Wear hiking boots! It's rocky!

I walked up the second half of the mountain on the road. Nice walk. There are also trails to the summit.

Took the drive up with my husband and 3 boys. Fairly easy and nondescript until you get 3/4 of the way up and the trees start to part and reveal the awesome view. I've to the top we were treated to the enormous tower which was unfortunately closed. Then the 180 degree view. We were up there on a damp... More

It's a long drive up the mountain but worth the trip. The view is amazing. On a clear day you can see 5 states. Remember to bring big spray and a camera.

Coming from North Adams, the access road to Mount Greylock is not easy to find. It's just a small residential street with no sign to indicate that the entrance to the park is at the end of it. The drive up the mountain is a wooded road which takes about twenty minutes to negotiate to the top. Once there, the... More

I have lived in Massachusetts for over 40 years but have never been to Mt Greylock. On the way back from Saratoga we decided to stop by and check it out with the 3 kids (15, 13, 8). We went straight to the visitors center where the ranger was super helpful. He gave us a map a suggested a few... More
