Very nice Snow on top took Thunderbolt trail
Nice but short side trip during a college visit weekend with Nicholas (our oldest).
Got my 2nd highpoint in April 2018, about a 3 hour drive from Southern Rhode Island. Cold, windy day with a lot of snow still on the ridge. Very foggy so didn't get any view. Thought the summit tower was neat, but it's not open at this time of the year.
The approach through the woods was nice and we enjoyed the pond just before the “summit” but the noise from the road gave us a glimpse into the zoo that awaited us at the top of the hill. Noisy and obnoxious place.
With Donny Franzen and Scott Humphrey
Can't remember if we hiked it or drove it
Without planning to do so, strictly speaking I stood on the highpoint of Massachusetts the evening of August 29, 2019 which technical makes it my official summit date. However, since I deliberately hiked to the peak and spent half an hour there on August 30, that date is more special to me and feels like my genuine summit date.
August 30, 2019 - Drove up Notch road to where it Y's - one leg of Y goes to summit other is main Notch road. Parked there and walked up the 0.75 miles to the summit along the AT (trail) to watch the sunrise.
Saw plenty of thru hikers
had a beautiful end of day up there
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.
