Saturday August 11: Ring Hike #5 – Climbing Greylock via the Appalachian Trail.
Appalachian Trail from Pattison Rd. up Mt. Prospect to Notch Rd. Meet at 9 am at Wilbur’s Clearing parking lot about 2 miles inside the park gate on Notch Rd., the road to the Mt. Greylock summit from North Adams. The parking lot is near where the Appalachian Trail crosses the road. Look for rumble strips; the lot will be on the left. (Will carpool back to Pattison Rd. to begin the hike.) 2.2 miles. Strenuous. Sturdy boots or shoes, water, sunscreen and a snack recommended. Severe weather cancels.
