Written Directions

- Start in Concord, MA.

- Take Rt 2 West all the way out to North Adams. This will take about 3 hours. After North Adams and before Williamstown,

Scenery

The best of Massachusetts scenery, excluding the shore. A great trip for foliage watching. Mountains, Farmlands, Rivers, Villages, and no traffic.

Drive Enjoyment

Mostly good, though you go through some twisty Berkshire ranges. There's some long stretches without gas stations, so fill up when you can. Rt 22 is a little sparse, and not in the best shape. Take Route 7 down from North Adams, to Great Barrington, if you are a novice rider. It's still lovely, though more touristy.

Tourism Opportunities

I hit the highlights of the trip below (in the directions section), but I can't begin to describe all there is to do. Look in Yankee magazine for some good stops. I mentioned it below, and its worth repeating, that you should start your day with a full tank, and fill up especially in North Adams, Great Barrington, and in Amherst. There's some long stretches will few gas stations.
