Mt. Greylock Reservation

Here is the Veterans War Memorial Tower atop Mt. Greylock, the highest peak in Massachusetts. Photos below of Bascom Lodge, built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s, and of the view from Mt. Greylock will have to suffice until the reservation auto road, and these structures, are once again open to the public.

Hikers are still permitted on the reservation, which spreads across six towns in Berkshire County, but the road system is under repair for 2007 and 2008. Next year, 2009, the roads to the summit will once again be open for autos, bikes, and walkers.

For more information on Mt. Greylock State Reservation, established in 1898, have a look at this website.

Been there? Done that? Stayed overnight at Bascom Lodge, or know a CCC fellow who helped build it? Let us know.
