The Bellows Pipe Trail to the summit of Mt Greylock is located on Gould Rd in Adams, Massachusetts. This is a very popular trail even on a cold, wet, foggy, October day. The trail itself is fairly wide, with areas of loose rock, mud and some slight 'bouldering'. The trail is weaves up the mountain crossing the Thunderbolt Trail at several points and provides a steady moderate incline with spurts of steepness. 

The pictures on the trail maps are not the clearest in my opinion, though the trail is well marked at all turns.

Near the summit is the most difficult portion of the trail. It consists of a few steep long switchbacks, after which the trail merges with the AT and continues in some short steep bursts to the summit.

Waterfall: Around mile 0.8 there's a waterfall off the trail. Views of the waterfall are better when there are no leaves on the trees.

MyHikes is an independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. MyHikes has no investors, no shareholders, no goal to profit, and is owned and operated by one person. We share trails on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time tracking, writing about, and publishing new trails each month.

But it takes a lot of money, time, and effort (including espresso shots) to run MyHikes. Our content is and always will be free to use, including interactive trail maps and elevation charts, pictures from the trail, and dope points-of-interest like vistas, overlooks, waterfalls, backcountry campsites, abandoned structures, and more...

So we simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your outdoor excursions that you consider making a small donation to help keep our lights on.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes account required) when donating to unlock perks. Or you can Donate without an account.

Either way, thanks for checking out MyHikes and have a great hike!
