The Rockwell Road to Greylock

Today we are exploring the road to Mt. Graylock which winds it's way up to the highest point in Massachusetts at 3491' obove sea level. Mount Graylock is located in the northwest corner of the state of Massachusetts overlooking the town of Adams.


The Rockwell Road to Graylock was completed in 1907. A lot of folks ask "is Graylock a fee use area"? How much does it cost to drive up Graylock? Well, nothing! It's a wonderful and absolutly FREE drive to the top, however at the top if you want to park and look around there's a $2 parking user fee.


Can you camp on Graylock? The only camping we saw was a 11/2 mile walk from where you park here. We did not camp at Graylock so I don't know what it's like.


Scenery from one of the many scenic overlooks at pull-outs along Rockwell Road.

RV's are not recommended, there are gnarly hairpin turns on Rockwell Road, throw in steep grades and cliffs'n your better off steering clear.


There were a few pretty little waterfalls along the way.


A sign at the top of Rockwell Road reads:
WELCOME MT. GRAYLOCK SUMMIT ELEVATION 3491'

At the top of Graylock stands an impressive lighthouse to explore in my next moblog post.
