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

We loved Greylock and wished we were better prepared to stay for the afternoon and had brought a blanket and packed a picnic lunch. If your going to visit here make sure you bring a camera- the view is gorgeous.

We took the road up the mountain on a whim. WOW! It is beautiful, the drive, the views, the monument, everything. $4 to park at the top. We had a thunderstorm hit while we were there. Scary but cool!!! It looked like there were great trails to hike too but we didn't have time.

We came here to have lunch and we were up for a treat. The roads to the summit are well taken care off and you have viewing areas along the way. Once you get to the summit, pay the $4 parking fee and enjoy the views! If you don't want to eat the lodge food, bring your picnic and set... More

Offers something for all liking the outdoors. The trails are varied and length and difficulty and the views from the top are great. We met up with our AT thru hikers in Williamstown and did our 2 mile part of the trail with them. Nice pretty drive to the top. The Monument at the top is beautiful!

Beautiful views of course. We got there early and drove to summit. Great trail at the summit that is good for athletic dogs. About 2 hours to make the loop. Not buggy although can be muddy after rain.

We did a 3 day 2 night loop backpacking trip up and around the mountain. The camping shelters are free, first come first serve. They are close enough together that families can backpack with small kids. We made it to the top and then back down with our heavy backpacks. Most people drove to the top. And many others rode...

Free to drive put parking at top is a few dollars, unless there's no one present to take cash & it's free. Lovely view & could see points in 4 states from peak. War Memorial closed for revamp until 2016.
