    Mt. Greylock Saturday October 10th

    Sorry for the short notice but trying to squeeze in a ride between business trips.

    Looking at going to Mt. Greylock area for lunch on Saturday.

    Here's the thing - I don't know the area to know of a good place to suggest to meet for lunch.

    Weather is supposed to be partly cloudy in the 50's

    Who wants to meet there, and where?

    Sounds like a possibility! Don't know where to eat around there either, I usually end up at DD's. I do recall that there is a hot dog diner of some sorts in N Adams.

    Great - I am keeping my eye on this thread as it develops; and try to collate a plan as things progress.

    I had a great breakfast at the Red Carpet Restaurant, 69 Park St, Adams, MA‎, at the end of September last year. Small store front place and I don't recall if there is a lunch counter or not, but there could have been. Good food, inexpensive.

    Even if the Greylock road was open, there wasn't much point of going up the mountain that day.



    This October day in 2006 was a much better choice (view to the west):

    i had a killer breakfast burrito at mcdonalds in Adams back in august


    but if you can get to Jack's Hot Dog Stand it's cool, but be warned, it's got weird hours, from what i recall. you probably won't need to bring more than 8 dollars. there's also a good mexican place in williamstown, coyote flaco, i think, it's on 43, just a left off 2 as it goes through the college.

    My wife will be joining us.

    She also found this place Freight Yard Pub Link

    It looks like the crew from the east part of Mass (119240 (Joe)/RTRyder (Ken), my wife (Annemarie) and myself) will be meeting at the junction of 2 and 2A - there is a gas station there.

    More can meet here or we can pick up/meet up with others along the way, if the routes converge.

    From RTRyder's (Ken) information it is about a 3 hour ride from there, so I say we should meet at 800 and gather those who want to meet us and then take off at 830am.

    That way we should be able to meet the rest at the top of Mt Greylock between 1130 and 1200

    A rough plan would be to meet Oldhway (Steve) and others at Mt. Greylock as planned - Once there we can take a nice break, pictures etcetera and then head over to the place

    The restaurant is 9.3 miles (24 minutes away) - according to google maps.

    If this restaurant is appealing, I can call ahead and see if they take reservations, and if they do, reserve a couple of tables.

    Garmin mapsource route says 116 miles and 2 hours 32 minutes to the northern end of the summit road from the meeting point at Rt 2 and 2A. I'm going to load the route into my Zumo and I'll add a route from the summit to the Freight Yard Pub as well. According to Mapsource, we'll be going almost right by the pub on the way up to the summit, it's on a side street off the route to Greylock Mountain road.

    Now all we need is for the weather to cooperate, I'd really like to be able to get some pictures of something other than the parking lot at the summit this time!
