Suggest up Stoney Ledge trail, enjoy the view then down Roaring Brook for a nice loop.

Went during peak foliage in October 2016. Gorgeous!

The views from Mt. Williams, Mt. Greylock, and Stony Ledge were amazing! The hike took us longer to complete than I expected which led us hiking the last bit after Stony Ledge in the dark. I would normally be miffed at this, but thankfully there is very little light pollution in the area letting us have an amazing view of the stars once we left the woods all the way to the parking lot.

Bring plenty of water, and the lodge at the top of Greylock has a tap for hikers if you're needing to refill. We didn't really come across other hikers until Mt. Fitch and Greylock. Can't wait to do it again!

Pleasant walk in the woods. Should be rated as moderate rather than hard-- nothing technical, just a continuous ascent. The rise is continuous but not particularly steep. Summit was in the clouds when I went-- no views. Completed up and back in 2.5 hours.
