Mount Greylock First Day Hikes 9:30am

January 1, 2022 @ 9:30 am - 11:00 am EST

Each year, DCR hosts guided hikes on New Year’s Day, offering a chance to enjoy healthy outdoor activities at our Massachusetts state parks!

Join friends, neighbors and DCR State Park staff for a guided First Day Hike at Mount Greylock State Reservation! This program is free, open to the public and recommended for ages 7 and older.

Hike an easy to moderate 2 miles (90 minutes) on the Bradley Farm Trail. Explore remnants of an old orchard and former farmlands now reclaimed by forest succession. Afterwards enjoy hot chocolate by the fireplace!

Be prepared for cold weather: dress in layers and wear winter boots. If conditions permit, bring snowshoes and hiking poles. Dogs are welcome on a 10 foot maximum leash.

There will be TWO OPPORTUNITIES for First Day Hikes this year. This is the first hike of the day and it starts promptly at 9:30 am. The second hike starts at 12:30 pm and has a separate event link at https://1230p-mt-greylock-first-day-hike.eventbrite.com . Both hikes meet at the Mount Greylock State Reservation Visitor Center, 30 Rockwell Road in Lanesborough, MA 01237.
