Saddle Ball Mountain is the second highest peak in Massachusetts. It is located just south of Mount Greylock and is traversed by the Appalachian Trail. It has several summits ("balls") on a north-south ridge.

There has been confusion as to which of the summits of Saddle Ball Mountain is the highest. Local hiker Eric White has investigated this issue and feels that the southern point (as indicated on this web page) is the highest. This is consistent with the large size of the 990-meter contour at this point on the most detailed topographic map of the area from the USGS.
