A clear, cold river cascades through Mohawk Trail State Forest along a rocky streambed. This is one of the most scenic woodland areas in Massachusetts, and it’s only 10 miles from North Adams! Over 6,000 acres of mountain ridges, deep gorges and tall old-growth trees support a diversity of plant and animal life. There are 56 wooded campsites available seasonally and six overnight log cabins which are available year-round. Discover miles of rivers and streams for excellent trout fishing, a swimming area and a day-use picnic area. The state forest is located along and named for the Mohawk Trail which is a historic Native American footpath that connected the Connecticut and Hudson River Valleys. Sections of this route are open for hiking today as the Mahican-Mohawk Trail.
