Backpacker Magazine – January 2014
Take in a beautiful waterfall in Pennsylvania, spend the night in of New York's iconic mountain huts, and take a day trip out of NYC.
Mt. Greylock, MA
The normally busy summit of Massachusetts’s 3,491-foot high point empties out in the winter, when the auto road is closed. Put on a pair of snowshoes or instep crampons and bag the highest snowhill around. “We saw very few hikers,” Lindsey Hansen says, “and the leafless trees provide clear views to the rolling and snowy Berkshires.” Contact (413) 499-4262; Website
