Description

Moderate hiking, with some strenuous climbs. The trail wanders through the Beartown and October Mountain State Forests; passing through several small towns on the journey up and over Mt. Greylock, the highest point in the state. The trail drops sharply into North Adams, before climbing up into the Clarksburg State Forest, crossing into Vermont. There are many spectacular views of the surrounding along the trail.

The trail can get very muddy and slick after heavy rains. Parking along the trail is plentiful and safe for those wishing to spend the night on the trail. Backpackers are required to spend the night in either approved shelters or tenting areas, all of which have nearby water sources and privys.
