Hi Peak Baggers, Let us bag the highest peak in Massachusetts at the beginning of the spring 2021. At 3,491 feet, Mount Greylock is the highest point in Massachusetts. Rising above the surrounding Berkshire landscape, dramatic views of upwards almost 90 miles distant may be seen. It became Massachusetts' first state park, acquired by the Commonwealth in 1898, to preserve its natural environment for public enjoyment. Wild and rugged yet intimate and accessible, Mount Greylock rewards the visitor exploring this special place of scenic and natural beauty.

Facts: Summit Elevation: 3,491 feet. Elevation gain during this hike: 2100-2300 feet. Total distance (out and back): 7 miles. Nearby Town: Adam, MA. We will hike at Moderate
pace (1.5-2 MPH).

To address unforeseen challenges such as adverse weather, unacceptable trail conditions or excessive crowding, the planned trip destination, activity and/or meeting place and time may be modified. In that event, participants may elect to join in that activity or opt out."
