Decided to go Mount Greylock haven’t been in several year. It was worth the ride. We enjoyed our early leaf peeping ride and ended up at the summit of Mount Greylock. What a view and great hike. War Memorial Tower was completed in 1932 is...More

8-mile drive up to the top meandering up the mountain. There isn’t much scenery on the road because it's obscured by trees and brush, but there are several lookout points to pull over. The Veterans Memorial Tower is a commemoration to all Massachusetts war dead...More

We began with a video at the visitor's center - a must! Then we hiked Rounds Rock Trail to the vista and back. It's an actual nature trail, not paved. Definitely not for those who find walking on mixed ground but not too strenuous and...More

What a wonderful time we had visiting this historical place. We first watched a short film at the Visitor’s Center, then listened to its fascinating history from a knowledgable guide, climbed the 88 steps of the War Memorial and enjoyed the view of the environs...More

Hiker's dream with lot's of ups and downs. But you can also drive to the top for great views, and food in the lodge. Camping is challenging; car-camping is discouraged as most sites are walk in (up to a mile, though the path is easy).

A wonderful mountain to drive up to the top, and visit for singles, couples and families. Some climbers have even hiked up and around this mountain. Plan carefully to be prepared if going hiking. The views are terrific for enjoying and picture taking from the...More

Some of the best views are at the pull-offs on the way up (no matter which direction you’re coming from!). Take the time - it’s worth it. When at the top, make sure to climb the monument and then enjoy the overlook below. Also note...More

Yes there are picnic benches but there are also plenty of places to have a picnic in the grounds. Payment for car park is when you reach the summit and there is a booth at the car park entrance. The day we went it was free... More

No fee to go up the road but there is a fee to park so you can explore the top of the mountain. I think $5 to $10 per car. Stop at the lodge on the way up the mountain and there are rangers that can tell you about the... More
