Excerpt from Eleventh Annual Report of the Greylock Commission: January, 1912

The L. L. Brown Paper Company of Adams presented a visitors register. This has been their custom since 1886. This year the heading was changed to "The Greylock State Reservation," and the names of the commission added. The old registers are in the possession of the commissioners.

1. Reservation Work.

The usual trip around the outside of the reservation was made, to arrange for protection against fires, to provide against trespassing, etc. The cottage floors were repainted. Notices of the game statute, chapter 362 of the Acts of 1909, printed on cloth, were posted.

Roads and Trails.

Fallen trees were removed from the southern roads. The road near Mrs. Walden's, the Rockwell Road, the New Ashford road, the road to the camping ground, the Scholz 1910 road with the rights of way over the Milton farm, the southern roads and the North Adams road were repaired. The two changes on the North Adams road begun last year were completed. The roads were repaired again in the fall. There are about 25 miles of mountain roads, on, or used as approaches to, the reservation, to be looked after every year.

There are 14 trails, mostly outlined simply, and all in need of repair.

New signs were placed on all roads and trails.

New Trails outlined.

(a) From a point on the North Adams road, about 200 feet south of the little bridge over Muddy Brook, 3,325 feet to the summit of Mt. Williams.

(b) From a point on the North Adams road (near the upper end of the 1,300 feet change of 1910-11) 1,380 feet to the summit of Mt. Fitch.

(c) From the south peak of Saddle Ball, sloping southerly to Jones Nose, 4,100 feet. This is a continuation southerly of the rough trail, lined out in 1909-10, from the Lower Divide (the hill on the Switch Back Road).
