The Mohawk trail is a great drive for viewing history and natural beauty along Route 2. We stopped at several locations for photos of the scenery which was in full colors. We stopped in Shelburne Falls and walked across the Bridge of Flowers. In addition, we strolled through Shelburne Falls to view the other tourist locations in the community. There... More

A ride up the Mohawk trail is much more than just a drive. There is history and natural beauty at every turn. It is obvious why the indigenous people of the Mohawk tribes lived in this area of Western Mass. In order to take in all this trip has to offer you would have to travel the trail a number... More

We did the drive from North Adams and sober the top of Mt Greylock. The drive was very good indeed and with help from sat nav we took quite a few gravel surfaced roads on our way (not sure if we stuck exactly to the formal trail as it is not marked or posted as far as I can see).... More

My wife and I went in October so the leaves were fantastic! We are not hikers. We are drivers, lookers, and picture takers. But this road is still well worth it! We went from North Adams east stopping where ever we wanted to. The Natural Bridge was OK, though not wheelchair accessible. I spent about 20 minutes where she couldn't... More

Even a cloudy day didn't keep us from enjoying the drive east to Greenfield. Taking time to drive the slow roads is just fun. We stopped in Shelburne to view the trolley bridge garden, meet some local gardeners who take care of this beautiful little wonder, and then shared cream puffs at a local bakery with them. That is what... More

Of course the fall foliage in the Berkshires is hard to beat, and this was our main purpose for heading to Western Massachusetts in October. We were not disappointed.

Only the the first few miles at the western end are really nice. Once you climb to the highest point and enjoy the view, the rest of the trail (heading east) is nothing special--not much nicer than any other local road.

First town I stopped was Erving, it was just a hit, photo, run, but I will be back for Rattlesnake Mountain. Then stopped at the Mohacian - Mohawk hike trail along Deerfield River. Most can make the short hike to the river but after that, heading towards Shelburne there are warning signs stating it is rugged, about 4 miles round... More

After a week in New England, the long drive back to Boston down the Mohawk Trail was an excellent end to our holiday, even though some of the Autumn colours were passing their best.

We went from Williamstown to S Deefield and back again...GORGEOUS. We also took a little detour up to Monroe State Park to have lunch by a flowing stream...SO beautiful and peaceful and found a beautiful town names Rowe. SO lovely and scenic...well worth the detour. We were a weekend off Peak Leaf-peeping but the color was still lovely in the... More
