Summer on the Summit

The Appalachian Trail passes by the lodge on the summit. 

At 3,491 feet, Mt. Greylock is Massachusetts' highest peak. The Mount Greylock State Reservation, which surrounds Bascom Lodge, covers more than 11,000 acres. Hikers can enjoy 50 miles of trails over a variety of terrain, including a section of the Georgia - to - Maine Appalachian Trail.
For those who enjoy natural history, a variety of birds, trees, mammals and geological formations are found within the park.
While paved roads reach its summit, Mt. Greylock contains some of the wildest land in Massachusetts.

In an area known as the Hopper, ancient spruce trees date back almost two centuries, and 1,600 acres of the Reservation hold National Natural Landmark status.
From the summit, spectacular 100-mile views of the Taconic, Catskill and Housatonic ranges - as well as glorious sunsets - can be enjoyed.
The Mt. Greylock Visitor Center, at the southern base of the mountain, provides information, maps, nature exhibits and restrooms. 413-499-4262.
The Visitor Center is open year-round:
