At 3,491 feet, Mount Greylock is the highest point in Massachusetts, with dramatic views across 60 to 90 miles of valleys and ridges.
It became Massachusetts’ first wilderness state park in 1898, to preserve its natural environment for public enjoyment. Miles of trails climb from the valley to the summit or cross the face of the mountain looking for waterfalls.
The Appalachian Trail — one of the longest continuously marked footpaths in the world — crosses the mountain, and at the summit it reaches Bascom Lodge, a rustic stone and wood building, built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s.
The Lodge and roads to the summit open to the public from May to October, and the lodge offers overnight stays, prix fixe dinners, concerts and events in season.
