Good point genegene, I probably did not point out that fact very well. I was used to talking about it in person with R3l@x, so it may not have come out in the thread very well.
The access to the site is by hiking only. The hike in is not very far.
The Mt. Greylock primitive camping area offers a car free environment with spectacular views and a rare alpine environment. The Mt. Greylock primitive camping area can be reached by a 2.5 mile hike from the Hopper Road Trail Head at the base of the mountain. A less strenuous 1.3 mile hike to the camping area is available from the parking lot located on the mountain road.
At 3,491 feet, Mt. Greylock is the highest peak in Massachusetts. Acquired by the Commonwealth in 1898, it was Massachusetts' first state park. For years, Mt. Greylock has inspired artists and writers, including authors Herman Melville and Henry David Thoreau. After arriving at the summit you may see a panorama of five states.
