Hundreds Hike Mount Greylock During The Ramble

By Jack GuerinoiBerkshires Staff

ADAMS, Mass. — More than 1,000 people took advantage of Monday's mild and sunny weather to make the ascent to the top of the state's highest peak during the annual Greylock Ramble.

ProAdams reports that near 1,200 people registered at the summit of Mount Greylock with more making there way to the top as the day went on.

The oldest hiker again was Caroline Brazeau from North Adams. Brazeau is 90 years old.

The three youngest to reach the summit were all four months old. Although Myles Mancino of Cheshire, and Annalise Stokes and Liam Brown of Adams may have had a little help, they still made it to the top.

David Slick and Lisa Bollinger traveled the farthest to hike Mount Greylock and traveled to Adams from Golden, Colo. 

The Ramble dates back to 1967 and is more recently partnered with a Ramblefest, a party that takes place at the Visitors Center day before.
