We visited on a Monday, very few people. The view was amazing. We walked up the tower. The lodge was closed for the season.

Visiting in mid-late October, we missed all the fall foliage at the mountain peaks, but also missed the crowds. We had no problem finding parking at the summit or at the trails. At this time of year it was quite chilly (~36°F), so be sure...More

Loved doing a couple of hikes here and that the trails were in good condition and well marked. Rounds Rock trail is fairly short and easy, Sperry Road to Stoney Ledge was a good one too, with the bonus of available drinking water. Driving up,...More

We recently camped in the Berkshires and before the weather went soggy on us, we drove up to the summit of Mount Greylock. It was a beautiful drive (despite the fog moving in on us) and there are several trails that zig-zag the mountain for...More

It was a rainy day but we took a chance anyways. It takes about 20 min to drive from the visitor center to the top. The drive is pretty through the woods. The memorial is very impress inside and it actually makes you pause and...More

Cheshire Reservoir and Onata & Pontoosuc lakes are all right in the area, at the base of the mountain. I'm not sure if any offer kayaks to rent, but your hotel or lodge may know. The area is beautiful!
