Terrific Views

Highest point in Mass. The AT trail crosses here as well. Next year the new Veterans Memorial will be open. Hiking trails and a nice lodge are also here. Beautiful drive up

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.

As the location of the American Hogwarts for the latest Harry Potter series 'Fantastic Beasts and where to find them' it's easy to see the magic, if you believe. There was good parking and amazing views. Nothing special for Pokémon Go. Impressive views and the world's most comfortable couch (in the visitor area).

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
