Historic Auto Trail Guide: The Mohawk Trail

The First and Only Guide to Massachusetts and NY Route 2

For almost a century, New England has been famous for its scenic auto roads. The Mohawk Trail, now also known as Mass. Route 2, was begun in 1912 and completed in 1914. The Trail is the state's premier fall foliage route, especially the section from Greenfield to North Adams.

NEW! Expanded and revised second edition has even more information including full coverage of the Taconic Trail.

This easy-to-read, illustrated guidebook celebrates everything from the Trails' dramatic bridges to its varied collection of roadside statuary, its nostalgic tourist establishments and the entrepreneurial families that have run them. This touring guide is organized as a trip across the entire length of Massachusetts from Boston to Williamstown and continuing on the Taconic Trail to Troy, New York. All major landmarks are described such as the French King Bridge, the Bridge of Flowers, the Hail to the Sunrise statue, Whitcomb Summit, the famous Hairpin Turn, and Taconic Summit (Petersburgh Pass) and much more. Driving instructions are included for recreating historic Massachusetts Route 2-A. Rare vintage photographs allow you to make a then-and-now journey. 56 pages; softcover.
