This short hike will show you what Mount Greylock has to offer without breaking a sweat. The Rounds Rock Trail takes you through a small boreal spruce bog and blueberry barrens, passing the site of a 1948 plane crash. Parts of the wreckage remain as a monument to the pilot who died there. If you are willing to put the work in, hiking in either of these ranges affords some marvelous views. Don’t think the beauty ends there: The Hoosic River and the Housatonic River run through valleys in the Berkshires, a backdrop for possibly more gorgeous scenery than the mountaintops. Many would say to save your trip for peak fall foliage in autumn, when the hills explode with color, but beauty can be found in any season!
