Ascent Trip Report

... first peaked Greylock via the Thunderbolt Trail to a blue sky and scraps of snow around about in shade with trails almost completely dry, then returned down to the Bellows Pipe Tr & Ragged Mtn Tr Jct. Ragged Mtn Trail disappeared at a large stone for two of us at (N42° 38.780 W73° 0.8693). I met another hiker, Ed along the Bellows Pipe Trail and we joined forces. We learned that Ragged Mtn Trail which seemed to end for us had dropped down over slope just before the large stone on our retracing our steps. A yellow trail runs parallel to and across two ragged ridge lines to the east from this point. At (N42° 38.930 W73° 08.492) this yellow-blazed trail goes north to outlooks within 400 yards of Ragged Mtn’s summit and south across a series of Raven’s Rock outlooks toward Greylock and continues beyond to Thiel Road.
