This MA. Scenic Drive Leads To A Magical View!
Growing up in the Berkshires, scenic drives are certainly a must no matter what parts you live in. Especially when it comes to the highest peak in Massachusetts! Mount Greylock State Reservation which was established in 1898, home to amazing scenery, and a stunning view at 3,491 feet looking into a total of five states!
There are two ways to drive up to summit. You have Notch Road in North Adams which is the shortest but it is on the steep side. So, if you're looking for a more enjoyable ride, you can take Rockwell Road side in Lanesborough.
Along the way, you will find many awesome lookout points where you can take pictures of amazing views of the Berkshires or as mentioned the many states that surround the area.
When you get to the very top, you'll be greeted but a stunning view including a large area to walk around and explore including the Memorial Tower that's open during the Park's hours. Again, we're talking five states you can see on a clear day including Massachusetts, New York, Vermont, Connecticut, and New Hampshire!
