We are staying in Stockbridge for 4 nights from the 11th October. We enjoy hiking (not too strenuous) and are thinking of Mount Greylock for a day out - and hoping for some nice views from the top. I know you can drive to the top, but would like to find a nice route to walk. Perhaps we should also consider Monument Mountain?
* Can't work out how long it would take us to drive to Mount Washington to pick up the cog railway. Is it too far?
* We'd also quite like to drive the Kancamagus Highway for the foliage, but again - can't guage the distance/time
* Also, can anyone tell me when it gets dark around that time of year?
* I'm hoping we'll have timed it right to catch the fall colours this year - or perhaps we're too far south?
Many thanks for any help you can offer.
