The Mohawk Trail began as an Native American trade route which connected Atlanticmarker tribes with tribes in Upstate New York and beyond. It followed the Millers Rivermarker, Deerfield River and crossed the Hoosac Rangemarker.

Today the Mohawk Trail is part of Massachusettsmarker Route 2, which was created as one of the United States' first scenic highways. It follows much of the original Indian trail, from Orange, Massachusettsmarker to Williamstown, Massachusettsmarker, for about through the Berkshiremarker mountains.

Around the western portion of the road is the Mohawk Trail State Forest, a forest, known for its camping, and occasional encounters with bobcats and black bear.

The road passes exceptionally close to Vermontmarker, and to many locals, a common scenic drive follows most of the Trail, and departs north to Harriman Reservoir or Ball Mountain State Park.
