Massachusetts Subway Map
85 miles in Massachusetts (2,100 total). The Appalachian Trail enters Massachusetts via the south Taconic Mountains, in the southwest corner of the state, where there are some outstanding views from several mountain-tops and open ledges.
The trail then heads north through the hilly Berkshires of western Massachusetts. Before reaching the Vermont border, it ascends 3,491-foot Mount Greylock, highest elevation in the state. Difficulty ranges from easy to strenuous.
Cam ping Regulations: Camping along the Appalachian Trail in Massachusetts is generally restricted to lean-to sites and other designated campsites, located at regular intervals along the way. Campfires are allowed at some but not all campsites. A small fee is charged to camp at a couple of sites. No permits are required.
