Fantastic view of the surrounding valley. Bring a jacket if it is cool. You can see for a very long way. I recommend binoculars. My son has a home at the foot of the mountain so it was nice to have a guide. But the...More

Stopped at the visitors center first to get map and get advice from rangers who suggested a short hiking loop we could take that wasn't too strenuous and where we could see a plane wreck. From there we drove to the top to see the...More

So many options, so little time. Visit the small but lovely Visitors Center- great video of the area and history. Also includes maps, exhibits, and helpful staff. The Summit offers scenic views and access to the Veterans War Memorial Tower. The Bascom Lodge was closed...More

The drive up the mountain is excellent. Once you get to the top it's absolutely beautiful panoramic views of all the surroundings. The beacon memorial is a sight to see.

We spent the day exploring Mount Greylock. It was a clear day and we had great views of the surrounding area. At the summit is the Veterans Memorial that has spiral stair case for views on all directions. The Visitor Center is a must stop....More

It's a great drive to the top and then there are a variety of hikes available. We loved the overlook hike and then maybe a mile or so back on the Appalachian Trail. And then some really good chilli at the lodge! Lovely hiking.

There was a dog on our corridor there, and it was a problem as the dog barked every time one of us went down the hall to our rooms.

We just used Google maps, but we have a good nose for direction. Once you're on the road to the summit, there's nowhere else to go. Same thing coming down.
