My husband and I started our foray into camping and hiking at Mt. Greylock. I remember the first night we stayed there, my husband had told the ranger about how nervous I was, this gentleman (Jared) was so kind and helpful. He provided me with alot of information and stayed and talked for a while. Whenever we returned, he always... More

Drove to top of highest peak in the state with great views. We were staying in Williamstown so you can go up one way and come down via another (helps with a sat nav). Hats off to those who do it by walking up!

Never been here and wanted to see it in all it glory during foliage. All I can say is WOW! I drove to the summit because I wanted to see the views driving up to the top. There were parking on the side of the road to stop and be at awe with the views. When arriving at the top... More

We were spending a few days in beautiful Williamstown, MA and obviously wanted to drive to the top of the highest mountain in Massachusetts. Having driven through the Rockies, we were not expecting a spectacular drive or a spectacular view from the top. We really underestimated Mount Greylock. First of all, the drive is spectacular and the views on the... More

Mt. Greylock commands spectacular views in clear weather. In foul weather, the drive up and down the mountain can be scary, and the hike may be dangerous. I recommend going in early autumn for the foliage views, but before mid-October (we were caught in a snowstorm on October 22nd and drove down the mountain at under 10 mph).

Mount Greylock is located in northwest Massachusetts, near Williams College, and is the state's highest point, nearly 3500 feet. In addition, it is on the Appalachian Trail. The Veterans War Memorial Tower at the summit can be seen from many areas in western Massachusetts. The views at the summit are superb. There are plenty of hiking trails up to the... More

The lookout is closed for repair. Who cares? So much to see on the way up and on the way down. Beautiful Fall experience and amazing vistas on all sides. Really good visitor centre on the way up or down spending on where you start.

Closed from November to May. One trip to the summit, and you know why. It will take thirty minutes to make the nine mile ascent. the road is well maintained. We made the trip for the autumn leaves and had great views until we got to the top where the fog had not burned off. No frills, but we weren't... More

A must go if you're visiting the Berkshires. Both summer and Fall the views are splendid. Nice place to enjoy with a picnic. Great place for all ages.

We were given very good information about the sort of walks we wanted. Did a couple of different ones. Rounds Rock was our first walk. Less than an hour. Easy access and parking. Then did the falls. More challenging, narrow and downhill. As there hadn't been a lot of rain for a while , there wasn't much of a water... More
