Went to this spot twice to look at the scenery, once before and then after a snow storm. There are hiking trails that I would love to try sometime. My traveling companion was unable to get around so we just enjoyed the view from the car and it was well worth it!

I visited Mt. Greylock on October 27, 2014. The season was over, so the lodge and other facilities at the peak were closed. The Tower was also closed, for repair. On the up side, the parking was free. However, the view is great, as are the views on the way up and down. There is informational signage that is excellent.... More

We drove to the top of Mt. Greylock to see the Fall foliage views. The tower and lodge were closed for the season. The view was very nice and well worth the drive to the top.

The road to the top was closed for the season but you can park in the parking lot and you have a choice of a couple different trails including the Appalachian Trail.

My boyfriend and I visited Mount Greylock in October without really knowing what trails to hike or what to expect. We stopped by the Visitor Center when we arrived and asked the ranger there what trails we should hike for a 2-3 hour hike. He advised us which trails to take and said that at the MAX it would take... More

The boys had a great time just sitting and taking in the awesome beauty! Worth the time to stop by and enjoy!! Just remember if you pack a little snack to enjoy on... More

Even if you aren't a hiker (which I am not), Mt Greylock should not be missed. It's a lovely drive up to the summit, with numerous scenic overlooks along the way. Take your time, and don't miss the opportunities to pull over, get out, and soak in the scenery. The fee to park at the summit is really reasonable ($2),... More

The north entrance midweek was practically deserted which enabled us to make numerous stops along our drive. The leaves were at their peak and as the wind picked up it was a breathtaking magical experience driving through a shower... More
