If you are a 48 or 50 completer with highpoints, you should be required to hike this. If you can climb Denali, you can climb Greylock! Nice views, though the summit was way to big and the lookout tower sucks.

My first state highpoint. Snowshoed part of the way even though it was mostly ice covered by a miniscule amount of fresh snow. Once on the road we slipped around quite a bit and used the snowshoes to act as crampons. We probably looked ridiculous. Nice to be here in the winter cause we didn't see one other person on the peak, but the famed views of 5 states wasn't much more than a lot of gray fog.

Bagged this state highpoint as a drive up, at 11:00 PM. Mountain was completely fogged-in. It was a challenge staying on the road up to the summit, even at 5 mph.

Climbed this with my sons, a friend named Dan and my dog. We were told by day hikers on Saturday that the temperature dropped to 15 degrees on the mountain Friday night. It was a rough night sleeping.

A nice easy climb. the bugs were not too bad and the views from the top were fairly good, but other peaks in the Northeast have more of a backcountry feel.

Hit this on my 2000 AT thruhike and chatted up some motorcycle climbers reading the AT plaque. They'll have some good stories of the dirty backpacker they met.

Pleasant enough hike, but sucks being on a mountain where 99% of the people drove to the top.

Weekend WarriorRoute Climbed: Appalachian Trail - Notch Rd in Cheshire to summit Date Climbed: June 2001  Sucess!
Trip was moderate for the most part. Northern section of AT heading south over Mts. Williams, Fitch & Greylock was much steeper and energy consuming. Trail northbound seemed longer (9 mi one way), but much easier on the feet. Limited views until nearing summit area. Still a godd mountain to start the hiking season off with.

JohnRoute Climbed: From Thunderbolt Lodge ;-) Date Climbed: July 8, 2002  Sucess!

Impressive views from the summit east down to the valley and of the summit (and Hopper Valley) from Stony Ledge. Made the visit with my parents and 94 year old grandmother ;-)



The Thunderbolt Lodge (1 room), refurbished in 1998, is surprisingly plush and looks like a great place to spend some time during the winter. There's even a fully stocked wood shed for use with the 4 wood stoves. Although you are not supposed to spend the night in there except for emergencies, it seems like it would be a lot of fun!



I came here once before on Dec 24, 2001 and attempted to hike up the gated (closed) 9 mile road but got very bored of walking through 1-2 inches of slush with 100' visibility so turned around about 4 miles up. I saw 2 x-country skiers and think that x-country skiing or mountain biking would be more fun during the winter if you want to take the closed road. Snowmobiles also seemed to be a popular method up from the tracks I saw. They also got a surpise 10 inches of snow on May 18, 2002 that temporarily closed the road to the summit. My 6th state highpoint after: NH, TN, NC, OR, and CA. Highpointing really isn't a priority for me but it's still fun :-)

Interesting little mountain in the scenic Berkshires. I bagged this state highpoint as a day-hike in 1994 and again during my Appalachian Trail thru-hike in 1995.
