The Glen

Greylock Glen

Situated at the base of Mount Greylock, the tallest mountain in all of southern New England, Greylock Glen Resort consists of 1,063 acres contiguous to the 12,500-acre Mount Greylock State Reservation, the Commonwealth’s flagship state park. Whether you want the challenge of skiing the Thunderbolt, or just want to relax by one of the ponds or waterfalls, you are welcome to visit Greylock Glen and enjoy the outdoor recreation trails.

Hikers, skiers, snowshoers and bicyclists will enjoy the many trails accessible from Greylock Glen. Many of these trails connect to the extensive trail system within the State Reservation, including the Appalachian Trail. Several trails will lead to the summit of Mount Greylock and other peaks within the Reservation. In addition, Greylock Glen boasts beautiful open meadows, ponds, waterfalls and wetlands. Unguided nature walks offer birding, wildlife viewing, rare plants, wildflowers and trees, trees, trees!

Please Remember

Outdoor Center

Currently under construction, Outdoor Center will welcome visitors to Greylock Glen and serve as a “basecamp” for exploration. The 10,000 square foot, net-zero building will include a gathering space with a stone fireplace, classrooms, exhibits, a café and a retail/rental space for outdoor recreation gear, supplies and repair. A four-season café will open out onto the lounge allowing hikers, skiers, cyclists and the general public a place to find sustenance before or after their outdoor exploration. A patio will be open for casual al fresco dining. Classrooms for environmental education and a multi-purpose room used for lectures, film presentations and events.

Plans for the Future

In coming years, the Town of Adams will work with private developers to add several new features at Greylock Glen. Of the 1,063 acres of the Glen, about 25 will be developed; and all of this will be accomplished using environmentally sustainable develop methods. 

Plans include a lodge and conference center, camping, a performing arts amphitheater and an environmental art garden. 

It’s been almost a year since we’ve been to enjoy the splendor of Greylock Glen. A picture perfect day!
