The view going up and on top of the mountain is breathtaking. Once you are up the top you can either bring your lunch or eat at the restaurant they have. They also have cold drinks and snacks. Parking is $5.00 but well worth it. Don't miss this if you are in the area.

We hiked up to the summit via the AT. A lot of work, but the view was worth the effort. There is a full restaurant and bar at the top!

Great place to hike or just sit & watch the beautiful sun set. The lodge has a small restaurant that serves excellent (but pricey) food. The staff is very helpful & friendly.

We have been there before but never for the sunset. It was well worth the 20 minute drive up the 3500ft mountain to see the panaramic view, and even better if you make it up there for the spectacular sunset. There is a lodge at the top that offers simple, but very reasonably priced food. We brought our own, but... More

We drove up as we did not have time to hike it. At some point we will. Parking attendant extremely helpful and friendly. We brought a picnic lunch and so enjoyed being there.

We did about a 6 mile hike up Mount Greylock and it was a fabulous experience. The hike was not very difficult and the trails were well marked. Didn't get lost once which is new for us LOL! The lodge at the summit was very nice and had a small gift shop. The tower or observatory at the summit is... More

We biked up and over Mt. Graylock. It was a hard bike ride but the views are worth it. The lodge is beautiful and well maintained. I really enjoyed the 3d map of the whole area that is outside before heading up to the tower.

Great views from top. Lots of hiking trails. Nice visitor center at park entrance. Much cooler at top, take sweatshirt. Small lodge at top with food and views. Easy access from road, not hard to find. Seemed to have nice campgrounds.
