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

We hike Mount Greylock on the Money Brook Trail up and mainly on Hoopers trail on the way down. Beware this is quite a hike and expect 6-8 hours to do. Winter conditions make it trickier and with a lot of snow its not recommended unless you have proper gear and are ready for a hard day of walking. Additionally... More

Best in the fall, closed in winter. Beautiful whenever you can make it. Great scenic drive. Fall foliage(around columbus day) can't be beat. Didn't appreciate the beauty of home until I moved away and came back.

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
