A great view looking East, with some parking areas for a view of the west. It was reasonably priced ($6 for out of State plate to park at the peak parking lot only) and had plenty of space and tables for picnicking, which we did. There are a couple o trails off the top that you can "circle back" with... More

The pride of Massachusetts. Well maintained grounds at highest peak in MA. You could see for miles...to Vermont & New Hampshire. We walked around outside the tower which is dedicated to men who served in Armed Forces. Plaques scattered around the tower area giving historical and geographical info. Worth the ride. We saw quite a few hikers going in and... More

Had a blast with my family, the drive was fun, curvy and took a little. But the overlooks for pictures were awesome. If you are in the area well worth the drive. If you're a hiker, there are many trails for you to hike. Enjoy!!!

I grew up my entire childhood in Western Massachusetts and have never been up here. Home visiting, we hopped in the car and drove around the Berkshire region for an afternoon visiting great local towns along the way. As we came into Lanesboro, my iPhone pulled up this park, so we decided to check it out. I remembered something about... More

Expected more overlooks and view from the top. Too many mature trees to get the views I wanted. Glad we watched the film at the visitor center and walked the Farm Trail there before starting to drive.

Drive all the way to the top,and park..walk in the lodge to see it then on to the monument. Beautiful Art Deco. The view is amazing you can see 4 states at least. It's the highest point in mass at 3500 feet. There's camping for free and skiing if you climb up in winter.

Beautiful place for hiking or a leisurely walk. Views were tremendous. Many people there with children - but it was large enough that you did not feel crowded. There were some groups there doing watercolors - interesting to chat with the artists. The memorial there is also very interesting.

Hiked up the last couple of miles to the summit. If you don't want to hike, you can drive up to the top.

The views from the top of the mountain are spectacular, especially at sunset. The tower is beautiful and unique, although you can’t climb to the top as it is closed for renovation until 2017. There is a restaurant and an inn there as well.

This highest summit in Massachusetts was one of the highlights of my recent vacation in New England. The views are remarkable. The added flair of stones engraved with passages from the literary masters who now haunt the area, make this a must visit. Topped with a monuments to veterans, this sight is truly a history buff's dream!
