Rockwell Rd., Lanesborough 413-499-4262 or 413-499-4263 At 3,491 feet, Mount Greylock is the highest peak in Massachusetts. Acquired by the Commonwealth in 1898, it was Massachusetts” first state park. For years, Mt. Greylock has inspired artists and writers, including authors Herman Melville and Henry David Thoreau. After arriving at the summit by foot-trail or auto road, you can see a panorama of five states. ˜Mass Parks

Arrive at night and park at the Hopper Road parking area (see map). Camp at campgrounds just at the top of Hopper Trail. If campground is full of snomobilers then camp at summitt in the hut on the north west side. I plan to get some sunrise shots and hike back to the car via Mount Fitch, Mount Williams, and Mount Prospect.
