. Although geologically part of the Taconic Mountains
, Mount Greylock is commonly associated with the abutting Berkshire Hills
to the east. The mountain
is known for its expansive views encompassing five states and the only taiga
forest in the state. A seasonal automobile road (open annually from late May through November 1) climbs to the summit, where stands the iconic 93-foot-high (28 m) lighthouse-like Massachusetts Veterans War Memorial Tower. A network of hiking trails
traverse the mountain, including the 2,179-mile (3,507 km) Appalachian Trail
. Mount Greylock State Reservation
was created in 1898 as Massachusetts' first public land for the purpose of forest preservation.
