Route Climbed: Hopper Trail Date Climbed: September 04, 2005  Sucess!

Talked my dad into doing this one with me, since it is the high point of his state of birth. Beautiful forest on the trail and excellent summit views as far as Monadnock. The motorcycles, school buses, and crowds made this one not much of a wilderness experience, but still fun. My mom and sister took the road up and we all went to Friendly's for fribbles afterwards. Glad to get this one done, since I was once a Massachusetts resident, and had only done it by car before.

Route Climbed: Road Date Climbed: June 19, 2005  Sucess!

Part of a 4-peak day that included Round Mountain, Mt Frissell, Bear Mtn and Greylock. Ran out of time to do any hiking, but I wanted to hit the highpoint while I was in the area. My 9th state highpoint. What beautiful vistas!

Route Climbed: Drive Up Date Climbed: May 29, 2005  Sucess!

We summitted Massachusetts over Memorial Day weekend. I'm never overly found of these popular drive up highpoints but it was OK.

Visited summit at least 4 times while working in the Berkshires during college and grad school days. Always rewarded with wonderful birds-eye views of NW Mass.

An easy & pleasant hike, great for beginners.

My 2000 trip was memorable for a severe thunderstorm.

Route Climbed: Hopper Date Climbed: Nov 21, 2004  Sucess!

Nice hike, a bit much pavement near the top. Visability was bad near the summit, but it was fun anyhow. Looks like a good place to work up winter camping skills when its really cold cause its not that hard.

Route Climbed: Roaring Brook/Hopper Trail Date Climbed: October 9, 2004  Sucess!

Climbed with Flanders on our annual trip. Great trail and hike on Roaring Brook but was a bit congested with tourons from the campsite on up. Glad to tick this one off as we'd been talking about it for a couple years now. Interesting to note that nothing has changed in the route description or conditions of the trail and roads from a 1975 hiking book we used on this one. Was bummed I had forgotten my camera for this one.

Route Climbed: Hopper trail both times Date Climbed: July 1999 and January 2001  Sucess!

Hot and muggy in the summer, freezing and snowy in the winter...nice trail up and down, few people on this trail, great views both summer and winter--expect high winds in winter and bring snowshoes!!

Route Climbed: Cheshire Harbor Trail Date Climbed: 5/29/04  Sucess!

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.

Route Climbed: Haley Farm Trail Date Climbed: January 2, 2004  Sucess!

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.

Route Climbed: AT Date Climbed: Easter Weekend 1999  Sucess!

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.

Route Climbed: can' remember but it was from the East Date Climbed: June 10, 2001  Sucess!

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.
