Mt Greylock is worth the trip- but ifyou have been to any larger mountains the fact that this is the highest point in Massachusetts will not be the draw. Multiple hiking trails, nice information at the summit, and a nice visitor's center at the base. Views are great from all angles. The tower is currently being renovated so you can't... More

Took the road from North Adams up to the top of the mountain. Drive is around 7 miles but not difficult. Amazing views from the top that even impressed teenagers! Frankly a must do if you are passing

A gentle road to the summit with well marked viewpoints. Helpful guides at the visitor center. A stopping place with light refreshments at the top. Hiking if you like. Biking if you like.

Mount Greylock was just what we heard, magical! You can take some nice hikes into the beauty that God created! Parking is free except for the lodge, which is $6 per car! There at the lodge is a little restaurant that has good hamburgers, soups, and such! The prices are good for lunch, but a little more for dinner! The... More

Worth the windy, scenic ride up the mountain! Beatuiful views, trails, lodge at the very top. Would love to go back in nicer weather (we were there in late October and it was snowing quite heavily). Definitely worth a look when in the area.

The front desk personnel at Hilton Garden Inn Rec'd we visit here and climb the tower. Fairly short drive from Pittsfield so we did. Stopped at Visitors center and knowledgable person provided information about grounds and buildings. There is a model topography made in sculpture form along with various exhibits and pamphlets. Drove up to the Greylock Tower and it... More

Took a long ride on the motorcycle to this beautiful mountain. Also saw The tower at the top. But They were refurbishing it as it is going to be in the new Harry Potter movie. So we did not get to climb it. Beautiful views from the top of the Mt. even though we could not go in the tower.

This is one of the high points of any visit to the Berkshires. At over 3400 feet in elevation it lays claim to being the highest point in Massachusetts. The Appalachian Trail crosses this summit. The visitor center, at the base of the mountain, is a worthwhile stop with a short movie, information and friendly rangers. The drive up the... More

It was beautiful at the top of the mountain. The lodge is not opened in May during the week - just on the weekends. Had lunch up here and enjoyed he views. A great place to go hiking and lots of trails. The information building at the bottom is very informative about the mountain. The drive up to the top... More
