Visiting in mid-late October, we missed all the fall foliage at the mountain peaks, but also missed the crowds. We had no problem finding parking at the summit or at the trails. At this time of year it was quite chilly (~36°F), so be sure...More

On a beautiful early Fall day we enjoyed a most pleasant driving tour of Mount Greylock. The weather was picture perfect, dry, clear with a few puffy clouds and 75 F. First stop was a check-in at the Visitor Center. We had a nice visit...More

Loved doing a couple of hikes here and that the trails were in good condition and well marked. Rounds Rock trail is fairly short and easy, Sperry Road to Stoney Ledge was a good one too, with the bonus of available drinking water. Driving up,...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!
