Written Directions

The Mowhawk Trail is in the Berkshires of Massachusetts. It is also called route 2. The best part of this ride is the 35 miles between North Adams and Greenfield, MA. You can do it in either direction east or west and it is just as good.

Scenery

Great scenery. You start out in North Adams and proceed east to climb a small mountain. At the top there is a Native American gift shop where you can pull off. There is an incredible view of where you started in North Adams from here. The road proceeds through forest for several miles and then follows along the banks of a river for another 10-15 miles.

Drive Enjoyment

Lots of turns and hills. Roads are well kept but there are very few places to pass. If you come up on a truck, you may be better off pulling off and letting them get ahead of you.

Tourism Opportunities

Not too much to offer along this route outside of a restaurant, gas, and an occasional park.

Some entertaining sections with good turns and elevation changes, good scenery at points, but in-season, the traffic is very frustrating.

best bet for making a loop (and a really fun/full day: head up rte 8 into southern vermont to rte 9 then east to rte 5 south, make a great stop in Brattleboro at the cafe overlooking the conneticut river, tehn south on 5 back to greenfield/turners falls. OR 8 south to 116 east to 5 north.

Great ride. Extend it to Williamstown and/or Mt. Greylock.
