HikingGreat!

This is one of the best views of the Berkshires I’ve seen thus far. At this time, the FR gate is closed at the parking area, so the total mileage out and back comes to about 3.3 miles instead of 1.9 miles. It’s still worth it. The trail is a gravel forest rd. the entire way and runs past camp sites and facilities. There is a slight uphill as you approach Stony Ledge, but very doable.

Great hike with amazing scenery. The summit is always beautiful. Lost tye mapped out trail at a few points but still managed to do just about 12 miles in 6 hours. The last 1.5 miles were brutal on my knees, its quite steep but definitely worth the pain.

Recommend starting on Money Brook which is a beautiful trail by a stream with a lot of flat areas to offset the assent. Mt. Williams has an okay view but Mt. Fitch does not have a view. Only hard part is the consistent assent to Mt. Greylock. The view at Greylock is okay but has a lot of cars that drive up and overlooks the town. Highly recommend taking the side route to Robinson Point which is quiet and has a prettier view. Stony ledge is the prettiest part of the hike but the way up is on a road which is a nice change of pace. The end is a lot of dissent which is hard on the knees.

Pretty steep the whole way up to the AT then flattens out a bit. We had a nice lunch in a sunny spot at the top. A plane crash can be seen off to the left as you approach the AT, it has a haunting impact. Please be respectful of the wreckage. Did some internet digging after the hike and you can read about it here if you’re interested https://www.recorder.com/Trek-to-a-plane-wreck-2557848

The trail was nice but the views weren't good at all I thought. Only nice view was off of stony ledge; Greylock summit was super crowded and not impressive at all. Trail was well taken care of though. Not too strenuous of a hike though it ended up being around 13 miles (missed a turn near the end which added a bit) and it took about 7 hours from start to end. This included the added mileage, a long stop to wait out some rain, a break for lunch at greylock, and we took the pace really leisurely overall.

Great hike with amazing views, don't miss the waterfall. The distance is what gives this hike it's "hard" rating, the climb is not that bad.

Wheeeewee! Very good hike but very tough. Very clearly marked the whole way. By the time you get to Mt Williams, you’re done with most of the uphill except for one intense stretch up to mount Greylock. Beautiful views at both mountains and stony ledge. We didn’t ever explicitly see Mt Fitch but assume we passed it along the way and it wasn’t marked. Last two miles from stony ledge to the trailhead along Haley’s Farm is pretty steep downhill. Our quads were pretty wiped out so we definitely felt it going down. Bring plenty of water and snacks. Took us about 6 hours. Great hike, totally worth it!!! One of the best we’ve done in this area.

I really enjoyed my hike on the AT today up to the vista on Prospect. Many beautiful shots and I captured the smallest toad I have ever seen. I stopped for a quick rest to soak in the views looking over Williamstown and the Mountain Ranges of NY and VT. After a quick snack I continued on the AT heading East and took the road back down to the Reservoir until I came to the AT trailhead where I began. The trails were clear and there was a nice breeze all day to keep the bugs away!! Great hike and a shout out to all the trail crews across the country for maintaining the trails!! Thank a You!!

Nice trail. I think it was two miles of steep. Maybe moderate to hard. But only been hiking 6 months. And old lol. Worth doing.

A nice loop! Hopped on the AT at pattinson road - not much parking but it was pretty empty. About 2 miles in reached a nice lookout. Continued up to williams and then along nice ridge with good views to summit greylock. Then followed the AT down and then peeled off down the gould trail to spend the night at pecks brook lean-to. The following day hiked back up gould trail to rejoin the AT. This intersects with hopper trail, which goes down through the sperry rd campground, and continues downward until you reach money brook trail (and cross money brook which is a nice place to refuel). Mt prospect trail veers left (after another brook crossing) and takes you up the back of prospect. This is less maintained and more steep than other parts of the trail. You follow the ridge to an unceremonious peak before reaching the lookout again. The last 2 miles take you through a bunch of switchbacks and eventually back to pattinson road. Pretty pleasant for an overnight. According to my watch it was about 18 mi total (but we did go off track on the hopper trail before the campground) and about 3,200 ft elevation gain. Hiking at a super slow (0 activity quarantine-induced) pace it took about 12 hours total.

What a lovely full-day hike. It can be a little confusing at the beginning, as there's a lot of trails shooting off, few blazes, and no cell service to check so it was unclear which trail I should be taking at first but once you start gaining elevation, it becomes much clearer. There are a few steep parts but the main thing that makes this hard is the length. Lovely breezes, and I definitely recommend the .1mi "detour" to the Money Brook waterfall and to follow the route to Stony Ledge and the Haley Farm Trail instead of taking shorter Hopper all the way down, even if you're tired. Both are fantastic. Bonus - very few people (on a weekday) and everyone was maintaining distance, putting on masks when others were close, etc.

Definitely a challenging hike that makes a lot of sense starting by the brook and traveling through the hopper, then going to each mountain ending with Greylock, and coming down hopper Trail. Offers some of the most fantastic views I’ve ever seen on a hike. Conditions were a little muddy, but it rained the night before so understandable. Definitely some issues with mayflies, but it’s also May LOL summit of Greylock absolutely worth the climb with breathtaking views! However, also had it’s physically challenging moments. Get a couple hikes under your belt before trying this long one!

Hiked this on Thursday and what a challenge!! The falls are definitely worth the quick walk out to, stop and snack there too. It had snowed the night before, so conditions as you ascended got very snowy which slowed us down. The final ascent to Mount Greylock was icy and we needed crampons. We made it in our boots, but would have been better and safer with crampons. Definitely want to do this hike again in the fall. Also check the map when you hit the road on the way down, we accidentally went off trail for a while because the real trail is behind you. Overall, this took us 9 hours because of the conditions.

Great trail, it’s April 11, 2020 and there was lots of snow and ice on the trails. Appalachian trail was at times hard to follow as it is marked white so the trail markings easily hid with the snow. Suggest stopping at money brook falls. Absolutely amazing! We had a wonderful day, total of a smidge over 14 miles :)

Great hike took me around seven hours, the hardest is get to the top then is a piece of cake, Dogs are ok use boots if possible getting to the top is a little icy

This was quite a strenuous hike to get you to the tallest point in Massachusetts. Definitely makes you feel like you earned the high point. Took about seven hours to complete with decent amount of stops for photos. It’s still a bit cold and there was snow and ice at the top. I’d recommend bringing micro spikes if you plan to do this now. The trail was well-marked with tree blazes and very straight forward. Views at the top were amazing and scenery along the Money Brook trail was beautiful. Definitely take the short detour to see the waterfall. Overall, an excellent challenging hike to anyone physically fit. This hike makes it Highpoint #20 for me.
