Adams, MA


Adams: Mt. Greylock’s summit is located in Adams (along with Bascom Lodge), and the trailheads for Cheshire Harbor Trail, Gould Trail and Thunderbolt Trail are all fairly close to Adams’ downtown. If you’re looking to get into a town while you’re in Mt. Greylock State Reservation, you’ll probably want to head to Adams. While downtown Adams does not have as many services as North Adams, most services are still available there. While there are several restaurants and a couple of inns in Adams, there are no motels.

The Ashuwillticook Rail Trail’s northern terminus ends in downtown Adams, and as a result there are several bicycle rental places in town. There is also an excellent tourist information center near this terminus. The rail trail runs over 11 miles to Pittsfield city line and crosses the AT in Cheshire. Adams has several museums and historic sites, including the birthplace of Susan B. Anthony.

Did you know? Adams was named in 1778 for Samuel Adams, not his lesser known (at that time) second cousin, John Adams.
