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

Stopped by the visitor's center for advice on trails. Trails are well marked and very good. I also checked out the campgrounds (walk in only, nice and large, not too bad of a hike). Beautiful scenery. I walked about 6 miles of trails. hope to do them all some day.

We came to the Mount Greylock State Park Office hoping to get some information about the park and the trials. We met Jude who was the friendliest state employee ever! And I can't tell you how helpful he was! He told us all about the park and the trail options, gave us a few maps with suggestions written and highlighted,... More

There are many trails to the Summit; pick the best one for your condition or bypass it all with a drive up if the road is open. At the summit, the views go for miles. Have lunch or a snack and take it in. My favorite scene was the little pond before the summit. So prestine and untouched. I would... More

We hiked the hopper trail to the summit of Mt. Greylock. The hike is pretty challenging at times but I love a challenging hike. We also did a side trail to the waterfall, which was challenging. I purposely chose a weekend before Memorial Day so that the road to the summit would be closed. The payoff was that we didn't... More

We didn't have time to hike the whole thing, so we took the road up and just got out a few times to do shorter side hikes, like one leading to an old plane crash site, which was interesting. At the top is the tower, which is very impressive and a lodge with bathroom facilities and a cafe. We crossed... More
