    Mount Greylock is a really beautiful place. There are many camping sites on and around the mountain and many different trails that wind their way up and around the mountain. There is also a road that goes up to the summit, where there are some cabins and a large tower (inaccessible to public?) great views both on summit and on Stony Ledge, a knoll to the west of the peak. There is also the Thunderbolt trail which descends from the top of the mountain and is a popular ski run in the winter for the able hiker and skier. This is also the mountain that supposedly provided inspiration for Herman Melville as he penned the American classic, Moby Dick, from his home in Pittsfield

    This is a great place for a hike. The trails are all marked very good. The view from the summit of Greylock is amazing. I spent a week there and still want to go back. Every trail I was on was in good shape. There are trails for every level of hiker. One of the best places I've been.
