At 3,491 feet, Mount Greylock is not only the tallest mountain in Massachusetts but also the tallest in all of southern New England. The 12,500-acre Mount Greylock Reservation is the oldest Massachusetts wilderness park. The park spans five towns with the Mount Greylock summit in Adams. The reservation includes the state’s only subalpine taiga-boreal forest. Old growth forests including remarkable stands of red spruce up to 120′ can be seen.
From late May through November 1, you can drive to the summit on two recently restored roads (weather permitting). The views are spectacular from the summit and several other spots along the roads.
