Mount Greylock State Reservation was the first public land designated for forest preservation in 1898 and the largest Wildland in Massachusetts at 10,342 acres. Incorporating the state’s tallest mountain, the reservation also supports an 11-mile stretch of the Appalachian Trail. Like other state reserves, Greylock is the focus for calls for permanent protection through state legislative designation.
