Had a beautiful day in front of me and the entire day free so decided to fully explore the Mount Greylock Reservation in the heart of the Berkshires. Mt Greylock is the highest summit in the entire state and offers nearly 43 miles of trails within its boundaries. I got started in South Williamstown on the Roaring Brook Trail located off dead end Roaring Brook road. The trail closely follows the brook for a ways.
A handsome lean to at the Sperry Road campground.
Rockwell Road leads all the way to the summit and provides access to many different trails as well as amazing views. Here is a view to the west from a small pull off.
Paved roads, cars passing and families wandering around the summit area, make it feel anything but natural.
