Mount Greylock


Mount Greylock

Hiking/Backpacking Date: Mon January 15, 2018

Join us for a Martin Luther King Day hike to Mount Greylock in Adams, MA, the highest point in Massachusetts with the possibility of views of 5 states! It's the location of many interesting early to mid-20th century constructions such as the Massachusetts Veterans War Memorial Tower at the peak, part of the Appalachian Trail, and the Thunderbolt Ski Trail (still in use). We will be traveling at a moderate pace to the peak on some of the local trails, a 6.6 mile loop with a 2100' elevation change. Winter conditions in Western Mass in January are variable so conditions could be bare ground to deep snow so having microspikes and snowshoes are a must.

We highly suggest carpooling, not only because of limited parking at the trailhead, but it's a great way to meet your fellow hikers!
