MA: Berkshires-Mount Greylock

Opened through October 31, the visitors center offers a caretaker who has worked there for 50 years and knows the mountain as if his own. I feel so fortunate that while I arrived at 8:45, he opened the door to greet me as they normally open at 9.

He suggested Rounds Rock Trail – An approximate 1.2 mile loop with a lot to offer. Two overlooks, remnants of a place crash from 1948 and a memorial to the 22 year old pilot.

Sperry Road offered the caretakers favorite overlook at the end of the trail. Since it’s a road, it’s an easy hike for great rewards (perhaps about 1.5 miles).

The caretaker had shared the six waterfalls and the level of effort for each to help guide the day. I decided to give one a shot. One thing I really enjoyed is being that it was Fall I could see the overlooks through the trees on my way.

Apparently the road is open at times to drive. I had to walk it but it was a scenic walk in the Fall. From the road there are also two other trails to waterfalls.

Knowing there was so much to save for another time I went to the top from there. The memorial was beautiful inside and out.

I look forward to my return to continue to explore the many other trails, overlooks and waterfalls!

Cost $0 but I’m told parking at the top may be required at the height of the season.
