Nice tower and views of the surrounding towns  Sucess!

Had a nice afternoon hike after knocking out Frissell in the morning. Met a couple highpointers at the top. Was all in all a great day.

Nice winter hike  Sucess!

Not too warm, not too windy, pretty much perfect hike in fresh snow. Cool ice formations on the pine needles near the top. State hp#21 for me

Mass is proud of their highpoint!  Sucess!

Nice hike, most of which was on the App Trail. The monument on top was the largest and most extravagant i've seen yet. Massachusetts must be very proud of Greylock. State HP #10 for me.

The beginning of a big trip!  Sucess!

This was my first stop during a big NE USA peakbagging trip. I drove to the summit parking lot, and then walked from there. I immediately noticed that several people were slanted as they walked; the wind was *that* strong when I visited there. I climbed up the spiral staircase in the summit tower, too. When I got back to my car, the weather shifted to intense rain and wind, which lasted as I headed west into New York to continue my trip. This was my 43rd State Highpoint.

1st state high point  Sucess!

Beautiful hike up my first state (home state) high point. Still cold at the top and felt more like late winter than spring during the hike. Hiked past the plane crash site near the AT.

Very nice morning to be on the summit.

Route Climbed: Greylock Circuit  Sucess!

Hiked the 12.7 mile long Greylock Circuit described in AMC's Berkshire Hiking book. Was a fantastic hike that spanned some of the AT and offered great clear views from multiple summits, including Greylock and its observation tower.

No people!  Sucess!

Started at the Roaring Brook trailhead. I didn't see a SOUL until within 1/2-mile of the summit - and that includes Sperry Campground, the road crossings (no cars either), and almost all of Hopper Trail.

The steep portion on Roaring Brook caught me a little by surprise, but no biggie. Was still up and back in about 3 hours, before any inclement weather rolled in.

I think I read someone post somewhere on this site that they do not recommend going up in the tower. I could not disagree more. The windows were clean; the views were beautiful.

Bernard Farm Trail to AT to summit  Sucess!

Trail was 4.9 miles with the final 2.4 miles on the AT. An hour and forty five minutes to the summit and ninety minutes back down. Nice mtn with a war memorial at the top. Met four AT hikers there. Got back down before it started pouring : )

Winter Wonderland  Sucess!

My husband and I, our friend, and our dog hiked to the summer yesterday with a high wind/snow advisory. We took Hopper to AT about a 8 mile hike. It wasn't too windy until we got to the summit, where it was difficult to stand still long enough to snap a photo on the edge! The summit was absolutely beautiful, blanketed with fresh snow and trees frozen with ice/snow! Can't wait to check it out in the summer!

1st Highpoint  Sucess!

Did a winter ascent with my brother. We had the whole mountain to ourselves. The top was like a winter wonderland!

Skated Uphill  Sucess!

Was going to drive to the summit and have a meal at the lodge. Hah. The road was closed for the winter. So I hiked the Crescent Harbor trail. I really appreciated my yax-trax. No snow, but lots of ice on the trail

State HP#10  Sucess!

Hiked up via the Bernard Farm trail to the AT to the summit. A little bit of ice near the top, but nothing too serious. Saw the wreckage of a plane wreck along the BF trail, very interesting!

Columbus Day Weekend  Sucess!

This trip was a challenge for my level of ability since we had to carry everything we needed 2 miles to the campsite, The next morning we began our hike via Sperry Rd. to the Hopper Trail which then connected to the Appalachian Trail and then to the summit. Weather was great and only a slight haze at the top, Mt. Monadnock was a great presence on the horizon.
