Mohawk Trail, Massachusetts
1 of 14
Crossing northeastern Massachusetts, the Mohawk Trail (Rte. 2) was designated in 1914 as the country's first "scenic" drive. For hiking and whitewater rafting, stop at Mohawk Trail State Forest and the Deerfield River. Mohawk State Park in West Charlemont is dedicated to regional natives, and Indian trading posts are located in Shelburne.

Planning: To reach the 38-mile trail from Boston, take Hwy. 90 and Hwy. 91 north to the Rte. 2 exit.
