Easy to access the summit road from behind the City Clerk's office building across the bridge (turn immediately right). Winding road with various look-outs. Easy driving to the summit, which has a shop and open viewing areas across the valleys. This is the highest point...More

It was a beautiful drive up the mountain. As we got closer to the top there were low clouds. So the view from the veterans memorial was white:( no fall foliage. It was all good though, the drives up and down were awesome!

The view was great, and it was a peak leaf season weekday, but this year's colors just aren't that spectacular. Perhaps it's the lack of rain? Anyway, it was still a great view. We drove part way up and then hiked the rest. The hiking...More

Mount Greylock is the highest natural point in Massachusetts, and definitely Worth a visit if you are spending time in the Berkshires. The views are spectacular, especially on a clear day in the fall. I believe you can see as far as 90 miles on...More

Nice well-run park. We had a picnic on the summit (we drove). The road to the top is well maintained with just a few scary hairpin turns (they warn you). The memorial tower is open during the warm season and there is an observation deck...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!
