Overview

Description

A clear, cold river cascades through historic Mohawk Trail State Forest along a rocky streambed.

Mohawk Trail has over 18 miles of rivers and streams for excellent trout fishing, a swimming area, and a day use picnic area. Many of the original Indian trails, including the Mahican - Mohawk Trail, are open for hiking. This is one of the most scenic woodland areas of Massachusetts.
