      The weather was too hot to be hiking, but highpoints beckoned anyway. For Mt. Greylock, MA, we started from the Hopper Road trailhead on the northwest side of the mountain. There is an open dispersed camping area about a half-mile up the Money Brook Trail which was all ours. (stream, some open views) This would be a good place to base a winter climb from. Our route was Money Brook Trail to Hopper Trail to Overlook Trail, descending on the AT and the Hopper. I wish i had done this as a winter climb. In June, the bugs were bad, and the trail felt claustrophbic, being mostly in the woods with steep slopes on one or both sides. Still, it was a way to hike Greylock (~10-mile RT?) instead of driving it.
