Mount Greylock Hikers Advised to Bring Extra Water
ADAMS, Mass. — Hikers and those planning to make the summit on Monday's annual Greylock Ramble should bring extra water with them.
Effective Thursday, hikers will not be able to refill water bottles at the summit of Mount Greylock because of water quality issues with the potable water tap. This is according to the state Department of Conservation and Recreation.
Potable water is available to visitors at the Mount Greylock State Reservation campground and visitor center, and bottled water is available for sale at Bascom Lodge at the summit of Mount Greylock.
Hikers are advised to bring extra water for their hikes up and down the mountain, and to fill their water bottles at the visitors center if necessary.
Important to note, Bascom Lodge will close for the season on Sunday, Oct. 23. Additionally, the road to the summit will close, and amenities and other services at the summit will conclude at the end of the season on Sunday, Oct. 30; however, the visitor's center remains open year round.
