Great scenic byway

We drove through as the Northeastern was about to blow through and again after. Great drive anytime and the Bridge of Flowers should not be missed.

We drove the Mohawk Trail west, from Greenfield to North Adams, in late October just after a Northeaster had roared through. As a result, many leaves had fallen from the trees and the autumn foliage was past its peak. But we still enjoyed the drive. View areas remained lovely, shops and restaurants scattered along the route beckoned and virtually no... More

We used mohawktrail.com to plan our itinerary and ended up in frustration as many of the restaurants and shops they recommended are closed and have been for some time. This was especially a problem when we detoured to some of the smaller cities they recommended based on their description of quaint, local restaurants. Somebody from that web site needs to... More

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.
