ESTABLISHED IN 1898, THE RESERVATION WAS THE FIRST LAND PRESERVED-IN-TRUST FOR THE CITIZENS OF MASSACHUSETTS AS A WILDERNESS PARK; THE FLAGSHIP PROPERTY OF THE DEPARTMENT OF CONSERVATION AND RECREATION.

AT AN ELEVATION OF 3,491 FEET, GREYLOCK DOMINATES THE SURROUNDING LANDSCAPE AFFORDING VISITORS TO THE PARK VISTAS OF FOUR STATES AND FIVE MOUNTAIN RANGES. WITH OVER 70 MILES OF WOODLAND TRAILS, INCLUDING AN 11.5 MILE SECTION OF THE APPALACHIAN TRAIL THAT PASSES WITHIN A FEW FEET OF THE LODGE’S FRONT DOOR, THE RESERVATION ENABLES GUESTS ACCESS TO A DIVERSE ARRAY OF OUTDOOR EXPERIENCES. FROM A STRENUOUS CLIMB UP THE MOUNTAINS EASTERN FACE TO A WALK THROUGH A SPRAWLING CLIFF-TOP LOW BUSH BLUEBERRY PATCH, THE PARK’S MANY TRAILS AND VARYING TERRAINS OFFER AN ENDLESS VARIETY OF ADVENTURES THAT CHANGE FROM SEASON-TO-SEASON AND DAY-TO-DAY.
