  • Even if you only have time to drive thru the park it is worth it. Hiking is better. Driving and stopping at the vistas is a pretty decent option. Gorgeous views on all direction. Note that at times there might be an entry fee of $20 per out-of-state vehicle near the high point parking lot, but there wasn’t on the day that I went. Free entry. Maybe because it was later in the day. 5 minutes or less to the top of the tower if you go there. And great views all around.
  • Great area for hiking! Visitor's center with some great info about the area and friendly staff. Includes display of conditions at center and at summit. Trails well marked and mainly left natural, with boards laid in some soggy areas. Would definitely like to get back here again.
  • Fantastic views in all directions, with multiple states visible on clear days. No entry fee. And, there's a lovely old lodge with food, gifts, and beverages (including beer). Note: the drive up the mountain takes ~20 minutes.
  • Omg! Couldn’t stop taking pictures! You can drive all the way to the war memorial at Mount Greylock State Reservation. The drive took about an hour and half. It drive is insanely good. It was such a relaxing evening. It is breathtakingly screen. Loved every bit of it. No price tag is attached just enjoy your time there. You can donate if you wish to. I have decided to take our 5 months old and got some great shots. Details found on one of the beautiful object at the site: One Hundred Years On June 20, 1898, 4 plot of 400 cores around the cummit of Mount Greylorle was cotablished do the turnt State Reservation Wilderness para to be eifered end unclaveby die people of Massachusetts. Those 400 Acre were only the beginning of what would become the vest Massachusetts State Forest and Parks system, dedicated to the conservation of public for all to enjoy.
  • If you're into nature and love breathtaking views this is the place to be. The DCR staff what are very friendly and informative. The tower itself is quite a breathtaking memorial. I can't wait to go back.
