Albany, NY: Mount Greylock via Stony Ledge

ma

Star Star Star Star Star

Distance: 4.5 miles


This 9-mile out-and-back charges up Mount Greylock, the highest peak in Massachusetts.

This 9-miler parallels a stream and passes a ski area nestled into the Taconic Range before tackling a 1,200-foot climb up to Stony Ledge (good views of the day's summit await). From here, the climb continues east on Hopper Trail to Mount Greylock (3,491 ft.), the highest point in Massachusetts. The peak offers big views to the neighboring Berkshires, and another state highpoint checked off your lifelist. Backtrack to the trailhead, or take an alternate loop down on the Overlook Trail.
