Nice easy to moderate climb with great farmland views and a nice cool breeze on top.
For a drive-up this was a pretty cool highpoint.
First one of the journey!
To date now, have climbed this twice, during summer and fall.
Farmland type views from the summit.
I highly suggest going to the top of the glass tower, and looking through the panoramic views on all sides to see all the surrounding area(s)
Parked a ways down from the summit and took the trail up. Very nice views and summit area...lots of tourists on top. Seems like a very nice mountain for these parts.
great views from the summit! beautiful day!
Great Views!!! My 2nd summit of Greylock was along my AT hike in August 2017 and I stayed at the top in the Bascom Lodge, great hiker rate, shower and breakfast (best blueberry muffins I've ever eaten), if you don't stay there, go in and check out the beautiful work done by the CCC!
1st of 7 county high points this weekend. Went up early to avoid the expected storms the next day. Well worth it;
July 4th roadtrip to check off Massachusetts and Connecticut highpoints. Fun couple of days!
Sunny day hiking through low trees and shrubs to summit.
Cheshire Harbor trail. 2:27 round trip time. Very wet and sloppy then frozen and slippery last .75 or so. Wind was strong and cold at the top! On to Vermont for hopefully a fourth on this trip before flying home. Very pretty part of the country.
Drove to the summit and walked around to view vistas in all directions. Lovely spot. Hope to return to actually hike up to it sometime this fall.
Did this one with +/-200 other highpointer club members (some drove & some hiked & 1 biked) in conjunction with the 31st annual highpointer convention.
Great day. Mostly clear and about 60 degrees at the top. I loved the small lake and cabin about a half mile from the top. At the top you could see forever.
Bagged the peak with a friend. I just love this peak,
Absolutely beautiful day for a little hike. Still icy near the top, and at the bottom it was extremely muddy. High point 2/50
The final summit of my three-high-point day (after NJ in the morning and CT in the early afternoon). The visitor center on Rockwell Rd. was closed when I got there (seriously, what kind of park office closes at 5 pm in the summer?), so rather than hike without a map I took the lazy way up and drove to the top. The summit was a bit disappointing: the crowds were out in full force and the tower was closed for repairs, but at least the view was nice.
...But nice views anyway.
The path was pretty steep, so it was a good warmup for harder hikes, but the views weren't what I had hoped. Views to the East and South were blocked by trees.
An awesome, 16-mile hike to start the summer. Hiked to the summit but also to some waterfalls on the other side of the mountain. Well worth it!
