Berlin Mountain Professional Review and Guide
"A challenging loop route, straight up the east face of the Taconic Range to its highest peak in Massachusetts. Views of Mount Greylock from Berlin Mountain’s flat summit are particularly pleasing, and an enchanting little waterfall adds to your enjoyment at the end of the hike.
Small wooden signs at the parking area read “Class of ’33 Trail” and “WRLF Loop Trail.” Williams College Outing Club students cut the trail that year. A newer sign reads “Class of ’33 (Berlin Mount) Trail, Blue Blaze, Berlin Mount Summit 2.5” and points into the forest, where you will emerge later. Instead, walk back down the gravel road that you just drove on for approximately 300 feet and look for a sign on a white birch tree on the right. You will enter a forest of white and yellow birches, red spruce, red maple, and striped maple; follow blue blazes as you descend easily. The trees in this forest are mostly young."
