This section of Massachusetts Highway 2, originally a Native American trade route known as the Mohawk Trail is one of New England’s oldest and most beautiful scenic routes. It is 37 miles of pavement running from North Adams to Greenfield, Massachusetts which runs through the Mohawk Trail State Forest. It is a great ride and a good route if you are headed to Mount Greylock  Mount Greylock Ride. Traffic can be a bit heavy on the weekends but it is still a great ride. Whenever we are in the area we try to make this part of our route.
