The Mohawk Trail (SR2) has to be one of New England's most beautiful drives. We always take the Mohawk Trail on the way to Williamstown each summer. It is a twisting but scenic road through the Berkshire Mountains, passing through many small towns with numerous attractions on and right off the trail. The Hairpin Turn is one of the highlights...

Now we just go for a ride either to Shelburne Falls to visit the Bridge of Flowers or get fresh produce, raw milk, honey, maple syrup and yogurt. Any season will bring a beauty to the place the...

The Mohawk Trail opened as a paved scenic byway on October 22, 1914. When it began the 100th Anniversary, the foliage was past peak so I waited until early October 2015 for fall foliage while it was still the 100th anniversary year for a trip. I duplicated a trip that I had a young child as best I could. Some... More

Guess what? The world still exists beyond 3 inch by 1 1/2 inch devices. Or maybe you've yet to be properly introduced to it. Give the panoramic views of Earth a chance.

The Mohawk Trail is a 63-mile winding road stretching east from the Massachusetts/New York line, close to Williamstown, to Millers Falls on the Connecticut River, just beyond Greenfield in Massachusetts. It runs through part of the well-known Berkshires, and is especially beautiful to drive in fall when the fall colors are truly glorious. The Mohawk Trail began as a trade... More

Don't miss this gorgeous ride that extends from Williamstown to Shirley! This is 63 miles of unrivaled beauty, especially in the Fall. The American Automobile Association, the National Geographic Traveler, the Federal Government has designated this ancient trade route as one of the 50 most scenic routes in the United States.
