About a 20-30 minute to the top. Would not go out of way to just drive through and see, but if in the area, definitely go see and maybe take a hike. Kodak moment!

If you're in the area; it makes sense to take a ride and enjoy the scenery. It's an 8 mile ride up the mountain, on a winding road with beautiful views as you approach the summit. Once you arrive; you realize it was well with the journey!

For a delightful time drive up to 3,491 foot elevation to Mount Greylock on a hot clear day to enjoy views of MA,VT, NY, and Mt Monadnock in NH. Walk the Appalachian Trail plus.. Climb the memorial tower then enjoy great food in Bascom Lodge. The Lodge and road were built in the 1930's by the CCC. It has a... More

I have to say this one of the most beautiful parks on a mountain I've ever been to. So peaceful and quiet at the top. Nice lodge to eat and relax in. Plenty of hiking. Some camping but I've never camped there.

We chose to drive back to our hotel using Notch road to see Mount Greylock. Beautiful views with nice waypoints to stop and take pictures. It is a Monday and the traffic was very low. People were quietly enjoying the gorgeous view and taking photos at the summit. The roads are really good and as someone who typically grips the... More

Upon reaching the summit one is greeted with a $6 parking fee, however, there are spectacular views of the entire region. If I had more time it would be a great area to hike and its part the Appalachian Trail.

Fabulous trails suiting a variety of abilities and interests. It is part of the AppalachianTrail from Georgia to Maine, so a variety of lengths and difficulty is available. The visitor centre staff will help you plan your day. The War Memorial at the summit offers excellent views and is worth the cost of parking.

We only went for the view from the summit. It did not dissapoint. Might return to hike one of the trails in the future. The history is very interesting. Only disappointment is that the tower was not open.

We hiked the 12+ mile Mount Greylock Loop and it was incredible! I recommend to all looking for a bit of an adventure, and a difficult hike. It took approximately 9 hours, door to door, with breaks. This hike had us following the Money Brook Trail to the Appalachian Trail (South), and summiting Mt. Prospect, Mt. Williams, Mt. Fitch, and... More
