Mt. Greylock, Deer Hill Trail

Trail from the campground parking area on Rockwell Road
to Deer Hill Trail and campground.
Last week I drove to Mount Greylock to explore the Deer Hill Trail and Circle Trail. At the Visitor's Center I learned that the Circle Trail, one I'd never been on, is no longer being kept up, although the ranger said that I could give it a try which I did. It was rough with bridges out and blowdowns but I enjoyed it but wouldn't recommend it--a little hard to follow.

The Deer Hill Trail descended past a shelter lean-to and into a ravine with a well-maintained bridge across a stream. Then the trail climbed up to the beautiful falls consisting this time of year of many trickles & drips. Beautiful! I continued on past the campsites out to Stony Ledge. Although it was a little hazy, the view as always was wonderful!
