Pre-hike Mt Greylock via Money Brook Trail

Before signing up for this event, please read and understand the entire Write-Up and the Liability Waiver. By signing up for this event you agree to the terms of the waiver.

This hike is limited to well-conditioned hikers with an appropriate level of fitness and prior above-treeline experience. Please do not try this if you are not ready.


Elevation Gain:2950 ft Hike

Time:5.5 hours (says the Magic Eight Ball)


Trail Condition:Well maintained trail

Hike Type: Loop

Blaze Orange: I'd appreciate it, so YES

As the title suggests- I have never done this hike before. Excited yet? Yeah, so am I! When I grow-up, I'm gonna be an explorer.

To be included in this epic (Jason, I hope you don't mind my usage of your word) you must have hiked with this group a minimum of 5 hikes, have above tree-line experience, proper equipment, and nerves of steel. If you have not hiked at least five, you will get an email from me, asking you to remove yourself from the hike.

Money Brook trail starts gradual and works its way up the deep valley between Greylock and Mt Prospect. The trail passes a beautiful waterfall that is worth diverting from the trail for or so I've read.

Proper footwear

High-calorie, snacks and lunch. You will be burning a lot of fuel to keep your engine running.

2 liters of water

Emergency whistle. Worn outside, in plain view.

Headlamp w/ fresh batteries. No hand-held flashlights. An emergency could require a late exit.

    Gotta go back there! Its a REAL mountain, with awesome steep high hills, raging mountain streams, very nice trails. Views would be awesome if if hadn'been raining. Only 2-3 hrs away and there's NOTHING like it in CT or RI. This venue warrants a weekend at least. Hmmm...
