Cycling Mohawk Trail West, Massachusetts - sign for North Adams on side of road

“The west side of Route 2 is a steady grade climb with traffic from picturesque North Adams in western Massachusetts.  An easy start in town soon leads to increased grade but there are no real surprises on this one.  Eventually you encounter a big hairpin turn to the right as you ascend the ridgeline.  Soon the grade eases up to the obvious summit.  The traffic will be with you on this one most days but is a worthwhile climb and a fast descent back into town except for the tight switchback and vehicles at times.” (This quote is provided with the approval of John Summerson from his book, The Compete Guide to Climbing (by Bike) in the Northeast, pg. 74.)
