Mount Williams Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Follow the A.T. south from the parking area. Walk through a forest of red spruce, where, if you keep a sharp eye out, you may be able to discern the bed of the original road to the top of Mount Greylock. You reach the summit of Mount Williams at 0.9 mile.

To the west and below you is Williamstown, surrounded by open fields, while the Taconic Range in New York forms the far horizon. Eph’s Lookout and Pine Cobble are visible to the north. Return via the A.T."

Nice hike from Notch Rd to Mt Williams summit and on to Mt Greylock. Very steep in places with only a few viewpoints from Mt. Williams summit. Views from summit of Mt Greylock are great but, on a Sunday you'll share the summit and monument tower with a whole bunch of people.
