In my last blog I wrote about the Freedom Trail in Boston. This time, I want to talk to you about the Mohawk Trail in Western Massachusetts.
This trail once connected the Atlantic Native American Tribes with those of upper state New York for trade. On the National Register for Historic Places, the Mohawk Trail is around 62 miles and follows along the Millers and Deerfield Rivers.
Many points of interest and historical places are to be found along this driven route including camping, statues and other historical aspects to be seen. Beautiful forest areas accommodate this wonderful drive and allow for gorgeous scenic views of the Fall foliage.
In 2011, a 6 mile section of the road was damaged when Hurricane Katrina hit the area.
If you are ever in this area during the Fall, this is a no-miss trip to take.
