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

If you are starting from Boston, you have a couple of choices to enjoy the October fall colors in New England. Our first choice was a day trip to New Hampshire. The time taken to do a low stress drive may be complicated due to traffic on the Interstate. The next best choice is to drive along Route 2 West... More

You do have to drive this Trail. So much of nature to see all over. Take your time, make stops with your car and take Pictures. And of course take a stop at the hairpin curve to look at the view. And then go and have lunch at the golden eagle Restaurant, the fine Dining with a Million Dollar view... More

Driving from North Adams to Shelburne Falls is a great experience with some very steep inclines and a few scarey hairpin bends. The views from the summit into Vermont are spectacular. Having had a very boring trip through the Catskills on the previous day, this part of of our journey certainly made up for all the disappointments of that earlier... More

I've been meaning to write a review on this for awhile now. This shop is a must see. It is located on Rt. 2 and I believe it is part of the Mohawk Trail. You cannot possibly miss it since there is a tremendously tall native american statute out front and a giant bear by the door. This souvenir shop... More

We take this trip almost every year. It's a long drive but a nice getaway from day to day bustle. Plenty of places to stop and walk around and stretch your legs and take in a great view. Spring is nice with the Fish Walk in Turner Falls, the Bridge of Flowers, Glacier Potholes and Mohawk Park in Shelburne Falls... More
