ADAMS, Mass. — More than 1,000 walkers hiked to the summit of Mount Greylock during the 51st Ramble on Monday.

According to a ProAdams press release, 1,037 people made their way up the state's highest peak on Columbus Day.

Hikers began their ascent at 8 a.m. and continued steadily throughout the day. By midday, more than 650 hikers had picked up their certificate at Bascom Lodge on the summit.

Steven LeMire was the first hiker to check in.

Temperatures were moderate and comfortable for hikers, however, there was little to no visibility from the summit because of fog.

Most hikers were from Berkshire County but there were also visitors from Delaware, Oregon, Texas, Nevada, and California. Daniel Callanan, who was visiting from London, took the prize for farthest traveled.

Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts also incorporates the Ramble as one of its college community events and students annually trek up the mountain.

The youngest hikers were Kaylee Wesley of Pittsfield and Dylan Icardi of Cheshire — both seven months old.

The oldest hiker was Caroline Brazeau, 89, of North Adams. This was her 21st Ramble.
