Prior to dinner, we enjoyed a cocktail and watched the sunset over the Berkshire Hills. After a beautiful sight, we enjoyed a wonderful meal and great company at our table. Dawn and I... More

We really enjoyed visiting Mount Greylock. The Ranger(?) at the info building was friendly & knowledgeable. The diorama/sculpture/topography map of the area was amazing, & the view spectacular.

I recently went on a 'couple's week' vacationing with my wife in the Berkshires. We wanted to see the area in the fall, to see the colors and tour the villages in the area. Our second day we decided to take a drive up to Mt. Greylock...WOW! The forest here was just lit up with color, and driving through it... More

The monument was being repaired but this was not a problem. The views on the way up to it and on the way down were worth the trip. There are two entrances to the park.I suggest you enter by one and leave by the other and stop on the way up and down. Fantastic views of the Fall colours. Look... More

Well worth the trip to the top, with the option of taking one of a number of trails. Unfortunately the memorial at the top is under restoration and so was not accessible for our visit.

Traveled to the summit in the fall and views were spectacular. The memorial at the summit was being renovated and could not visit. Had lunch at the Bascom lodge and it was good but lines were long and it took a while. Well worth seeing for the view.

Mount Greylock & deja vu. Deja vu in the sense of spiritual thought, experiencing how the spirit reaches out across time & space in a special natural environment.. Thanks to a group of businessmen, they purchased the acreage for the highest peak in Massachusetts over 125 years ago that led to the development of Mt Greylock State Reservation. From the... More

We went north to take images of the gorgeous colors the fall has to offer. It was a little foggy in some places but we were in awe over the views. Absolutely breath taking. We seen many hikers and bikers but we opt to drive to the top. Worth the ride.

The Berkshires are always beautiful but this time of year they simply take your breath away. Mount Greylock has so many hiking trails for every skill level you are guaranteed to find one to suit your needs. We hiked an easy trail then kept going because the foliage was so gorgeous and the cool day was perfect to work up... More
