It would have been a nice view if it hadn't been socked in. No complaints though, it always nice in the mountains.

But I was nursing some bad blisters from my AT hike in Vermont so we drove up instead.

We drove up this one, because we didn't have time to hike it. This was our 6th highpoint of our NE road trip. It was very busy because it was Columbus Day and because it was a beautiful day.

Climbed Greylock on New Year's day of 2005. The mountain was relatively snow-free, but we did run into some slick ice the last mile or so. We actually got a late start that day, and ended up coming down the mountain in the dark, and thankfully had our headlamps.

Drove up because I didn't have time to hike it this trip. All views were obscured by thick mist and fog. The entire summit was engulfed in white. Bummer!! HP#18!

IlafanHotel sleeping at its best!  Sucess!

This website's author poo-poos the lodge and lighthouse. Obviously, this person doesn't "get" the history of the place. Yes the views are spectacular and worth the trip alone. And yes the view from the top of the lighthouse is not as good as those found at the bottom. However, the inscription in the room at the bottom of the tower is a moving war memorial that reminds astute hikers why they have the freedom to hike the AT. Given the rundown look of the memorial's lettering, I guess this site's author's views are shared by others. Also, the lodge is a great piece of CCC history. The CCC offered hope and jobs to the downtrodden of the Great Depression. One of those downtrodden was my grandfather. So the stay in the lodge was memorable, even if the hike was missed. Can't beat the Melville and Thoreau connections either.

I suppose this would be my first mountain. My grandfather took me up here when I was about six years old. We climbed the tower and I even have a model of it somewhere. Very nice views.

Great way to finish up a trip around the NE. The trail was alot of fun going up and the trip down was very fast. Loved the views over the city below.

redmondJones Nose to AT Northbound  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 6, 2006
Went up Jones Nose trail to the AT Northbound over Saddleback Mountain and up to the summit. Beautiful day. A little crowded at the top. I always find it strange when the sound of a car signifies that I am getting close to the summit. Met some nice thru hikers though. I would recommend the Jones Nose trail to anyone looking for a little bit longer and slightly more strenuous hike from the South.

The trail is very lush with lots of ferns. The summit lodge is nice. We were in a cloud all day. Had a popsicle at the summit!

Just had time for the drive-up before moving onto the CT highpoint. There were loads of through-hikers on the lawn below the tower with their heavy packs strewn about.

Short (1 night) section hike/snowshoe of the AT. Quiet and peaceful since the road was closed. Came back on July 15, 1998 on my AT Thru-hike and saw Greylock at a much more crowded time.
