Husband and I visited a few times for birding/walking. I didn't do much hiking due to a knee injury, but still very much enjoyed the visit. The many scenic overlooks on the road to the top are definitely worth it. Even though it was misty when we drove up, it was still a really enjoyable trip. We didn't get the... More

The pictures, while beautiful, cannot do this place justice. It is a must see with your own eyes kind of place.

It is about 8 miles to drive to the top of Mt. Greylock, so leave enough time... since the speed limit is only around 25-30 mph. It is a beautiful view. We took a picnic lunch and blanket. It was a little windy and is a little cooler, so you may need a light jacket. It was worth the drive!... More

Second time we drove over Mount Greylock. Began our trip in North Adams. The narrow roads with their hairpin turns kept us at a pace where we were able to savor the beauty of the area--so many shades of green. So lovely. We stopped at many of the look-off spots and loved the beautiful views of the valley and small... More

Wonderful! Just go and discover for yourself. Dinner is always great at the top of the mountain. Call ahead to make sure they're open and you'll like what they're serving that night.

Beautiful view. Nice hiking for different lengths and levels. Note that the tower at the top is closed till (i think) 2016.

You can drive to the top of the mountain and walk around. Scenic views, lodge with food and snacks, a historic monument. You can take a longer hike on the Appalachian trail as well.

Visiting Mount Greylock is a great activity because you can either drive all the way to the top or hike up part of it. Depending on where you park, you can choose how long of a hike you want. There are also numerous trails, so you can select a hike that is easy, medium or difficult. We ended up hiking... More

Visited beginning of June 2014, weather was clear and beautiful. Views of Massachusetts, Vermont and New Hampshire were spectular. Easy drive up on great roads and lots of parking. Restrooms at summit house were ok atbest, and food was NOT cheap. That why only a VG rating.. Parking is 2>00 for residents and 3 for out of state. Veterans is... More

The road from Adams is in great shape. What a nice ride up to the summit. The view is really dramatic. Then took the South route back to Lanesboro. This is a really nice park. I want to experience the lodge when open.
