    How exactly are they trying to make it look like it did 100 yrs ago? Aren't they just renovating the road?

    I hiked up the ski trail last October and if my summit encounter with the road is representative, it doesn't look anything like 100 years ago. I walked the road from the intersection of the trail to the summit. Firstly, it's asphalt paved (not happening 100 years ago). The wooden guardrails are very substantial in length and size. Lines are painted on the road, replete with crossings and signage of all sorts.

    Thanks, Billski, that was exactly my point . Glad that others feel the same.

    Now that you mention it, no more cement bulkheads used as guardrails. (I was there in December & walked the road from Cheshire harbor up to the top - snow covered the lines) of course the timber used for 1909 era guardrails would have come from nearby.

    My next possibly planned visit is not until August at the earliest.
    Happy Trails, be safe & Good Luck

    Has anybody been up there on the new roads yet? According to http://www.mass.gov/dcr/parks/mtGreylock/hours.htm the website, the road appears to be open.

    Thanks,

    I was up there today and the road was open. I heard someone say it opened on May 22.
