I love this roadway. Beautiful sites along the way. Can get very busy during foliage time. This is a take your time kind of trail. The photos I'm sharing is just one roadside attraction of many.

There is nothing prettier than seeing the spectacular fall foliage as you drive along the Mohawk trail. The other great thing is there are a lot of fun little stops along the way, the bridge of flowers, hail to the sunrise statue, etc. I wish there was a web site that mapped out all the little stops but I could...

Mohawk Trail starts in North Adams and runs for 33 miles along the top of the ridge. At one point we were in the clouds driving on a sunny day. The valley views were like carpets of color. Every bend in the trail was a different sight. At one point we followed a river bed with the trees just in... More

Drove the Mohawk Trail from Williamstown to Deerfield. The view at Western Summit was jaw dropping. Beautiful drive. Stop and see the Hail to thee Sunrise statue and the bridge of flowers in Shelburn Falls. Highly recommended.

Since we had driven the interstate when we drove over to Cooperstown we decided to take the Mohawk Trail on our drive to Concord. The Berkshires are very pretty, but I'm not sure this drive is something I would go out of my way to take. It is pretty slow in spots and gets a bit repetitious. I would imagine... More

My wife and I drove the Mohawk Trail on my Harley and it was one great ride.We stopped at the Wagon Wheel Resturaunt and had lunch and drove into Williamstown. It's a very good ride and a lot of extra places to see along the way.

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...

We has been leaving in Western Massachusetts for the past 34 years. When our children were small we went hiking and camping. 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
