We hiked this on July 3rd. We are moderate hikers. so it took us 3 hours to hike up with frequent stops. Saw people but social distancing was not a problem. Our 10-nonth-old puppy did well on the hike. Beautiful views at the top!

Nice, easy, well maintained, loop trail. Great for an easy dog walk! Nice views of the mountain.

Easy to moderate hike, most of it seems to be an old carriage trail. It was surprisingly moist with frequent slippery slabs so wear GOOD shoes made for grip on wet rocks, NOT sneakers! Nice wildflowers on summit, and on clear day can see north 80+ miles including Mt Snow VT, Mt Monadnock NH, and many more!

A quick and relatively easy way to the most beautiful views in MA. Bugs weren't really a factor, and the trail was a bit slick due to recent rain. Very rewarding experience overall!

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, fairly easy, conditions were slightly slick due to recent rain. The out and back took us just over 3 hours with about 20 mins at the top. Unfortunately we picked a cloudy day so no views at the top.

Excellent hike in great weather!!!. We did the hike counterclockwise as so many recommended and were glad that we did. It is a steep trail but easily doable. The War Memorial and 3D all terrain map of the area at the top was pretty impressive as were the views on this perfectly clear day. . The trails were very clean and well marked although the markings on the Gould Trail were confusing on the last half mile of the hike. We figured it out with the help of Alltrails GPS and a paper map I was carrying. The short section of the Appalachian Trail South that we hiked to connect to Gould Trail was extremely rocky. But then things smoothed out on the Gould Trail. The Gould Trail made descending the Mountain easier on the knees as it was more gradual in slope. All together, it was a great day on the trails.

Great hike, relatively easy walk up on wide trail, however no true views until the top or unless you stop at the small alpine pond near the top. Started at 3pm got back to car at 6pm and spent about 40min at the top of Mount Greylock. Trail distance on here says 6.2 total however some signage on trail has different distances just be aware.

Some bugs but not a lot. There were some rocky spots. It’s a pretty steady incline all the way up to the summit. Not horrible....I had to keep stopping but that’s just me. I planned my time poorly as I was only able to hike UP the trail before it became too dark for me to hike back down. GORGEOUS sunset at the summit. Definitely going to do it again...but earlier in the day so I can go up and back.

Great hike! Def recommend going bellows on the way up and Goulde on the way down (steeper on the way up, easier on the knees on the way down). The trail isn’t very technical but challenging due to incline on the way up. Gorgeous view at the top with a tower (currently closed). There’s a parking lot on the top so lots more people up there than we saw on the trail, but still plenty of room to enjoy a picnic. It was chillier at the peak than we expected, recommend packing a layer for the mountain breeze especially after cooling down from the hike. The trailhead parking lot is pretty small, but there’s another one about .5mi away that has an entrance to smaller trails that weave there way to the trail head (or you can just follow the road). We arrived around 10am and the main small lot was full, but plenty of space in the one down the road.

Linked this up with the Deer Hill falls. The March Cataracts section is definitely easier overall

this is the Appalachian trail from cheshire to greylock. correct map, wrong name. This hike was super cool. some steep past especially in the beginning. but amazing views. we went one way from the rail trail parking in cheshire and then came down greylock to finish. 11 miles overall. its a decent challenge and its so cool to see the mt from a distance and approach. cute places to peek out! The breeze was phenomenal. just busy when we got to the top!

The views from Mt Greylock are epic and I assume why this trail is so highly rated. I’ve enjoyed other routes up more than this.

Good tiring hike, very steep on the way up but a nice easy descent. Beautiful unrestricted view at the top on a clear day.

Great hike! We took the Gould trail up and went down Thunderbolt and into Bellows. Just the right amount of a steady incline. Thunderbolt coming down was a lot of loose dirt and can be tough on the legs. All in all, what a fun hike. P.s. Bring bug spray

Great trail! Make sure to thoroughly read each sign at the junctions - follow signs to “summit”. As a couple out-of-shape hikers, we completed this hike in ~4.5 hours with about 30 mins spent at the top.

Some mud, but I was wearing sneakers and was able to walk around most of it. Barely any bugs! I'm an out of shape hiker and this one was definitely doable but I had to take a lot of breaks as its constant incline and no ups-and-downs. Not much to see on the trail - just a wide path, but views at the top were beautiful!
