Overview

Come join us for a beautiful mid-week backpack loop over Mt Greylock on the AT. Depending on the group speed and how our day(s) go, we may have time for a few side trails to Mt Prospect, Williams and/or to a variety of lookout points over the Hopper, a glacier cirque filled with old growth spruce. The route will start on the Hopper Trail and ultimately take us to the AT and over MT Greylock. Total trip mileage will be approximately 14 miles; day 1 (4 miles), day 2 (5 miles), day 3 (5 miles) plus time/miles to explore the summit of Greylock and side trips as described above. We will meet around noon on Thursday 6/4 for shorter day and finish up on Saturday . Pace will be moderate & include approximately 3,000 feet of elevation gain over the trip. This trip will include three consecutive days of backpacking over mountains and open to those in good hiking condition with previous 3 season backpacking experience. Group size will be limited on this trip as we strive to avoid car pooling to maintain safe hiking practices.
