Mount Greylock State Reservation

At 3,491 feet, Mount Greylock is the highest point in Massachusetts, with dramatic views across 60 to 90 miles of valleys and ridges.

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. 

Roads to the summit are open from May to October and lead to Bascom Lodge, built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s. In its open season, the lodge offers overnight stays, prix fixe dinners, concerts, and events.

The Mount Greylock Visitors Center in Lanesborough also leads guided walks and explorations.
