adventurebugBear!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 10, 2008
Encountered some late through-hikers on the AT. On my way back out I saw a baby bear scamper across the trail, which was scary since mama bear was surely somewhere around!

Date Climbed: Nov 9, 2008


I did this one solo as my wife was still a little sore from Connecticut's highpoint the previous day. I summitted via the Gould Trail located off of the Chesire Harbor Trail. It was a constantly steady uphill with a 6.6 mile round trip distance. This very likely could be my last Eastern Highpoint for the year.

Had to hoof it up to the summit, but it was worth it.

JofaUP Thunderbolt to Summit  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 15, 2008


Boogied up the short but steep Thunderbolt with my 10 year old and all our gear. Summit area under construction but looks great and almost finished! camped in one of the lean to's a little ways down from the top and hiked down the next morning. This would be an easy one day up and down, but we wanted to overnight it. NH & MA highpoints conquered!

So I was the only one at the top after taking the Cheshire Harbor Trail. Great views to the east! HP # 13, and one of 7 on my trip to the northeast in a week.

Climbed via the Appalachian Trail from the Williamstown Resevoir. A nice summer dayhike. Climbed it when the Auto Road was closed for maintenance so there was almost no one up there. Good views of the Taconics and the Berkshires. My first mountain in Massachusetts and my fourth state highpoint!

Was a ton of fun. I climbed Thunderbolt to the top. It was a great trail plus was decently steep. I'm hoping to go up there this winter, since the trail should be easy with crampons and so handy equipment.

macgrsSpring Hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 19, 2008
Very muddy and some snow, but we expected that. Hiked up Gould Trail to AT and then back down the Chesire Harbor Trail. Trailhead was a little tough to find. The summit is under a lot of construction so it wasn't as pretty as we had hoped.

My wife and I met fellow SP member puma concolor and his Dad at 9:00 AM. Hiked to the summit via the very steep Thunderbolt Trail on a gorgeous Fall day. Nice hike with some new friends. HP #26.

My third time to this summit (I have been to 49 state high points. ), but this was the best view by far -- great weather, too bad we were a few weeks too early for the famed New England color show. Also the first time I've hiked up Greylock, rather than taking the road. Hiked the Cheshire Harbor Trail, only saw 5 people all afternoon.

The Cheshire Harbor Trail, starting from the end of West Mountain Road in Adams is the shortest way to the summit for hikers. Parking area is at 1560', so this is a nice 1900+' vertical hike in typical Berkshires woods on an old road bed.

The posted description makes it sound a lot harder to find than it is. From Adams Town Center simply go up Maple Street past the large cemetary, turn left onto Friend Street/West Road (at the corner of the cemetary), then the second right is West Mountain Road, also signed "Greylock Greenhouses". The trailhead is just past the nursery, where the pavement ends.
