I grew up in the area and have been visiting all my life. It amazing to me that I don't go up here more often. My wife and I drove up after visiting my Mom, first time in probably 20 years. The facilities have been fixed up, but it is still the view, or I should say all of the... More

Mike was a super tour guide! He took us around the Bradley Brook trail and was so patient and friendly with the kids. He knew so much about the area and the history and we all enjoyed the experience! The mountain itself is beautiful with breathtaking views - a definite stop on all itineraries.

You can spend the entire on the trails of Mount Greylock. The summit gets busy during the week ends. There is parking (with a fee) at the top.

The visitors center at the bottom has an interesting movie and many displays that help children (and adults) learn about the animals, the glaciers, and the CCC. We were encouraged to take a short hike at the base of the mountain and enjoyed seeing the different wildlife and trees and plants.
