Description

This section of the Mahican - Mohawk Trail runs from the lower canoe launch to the Shunpike Rest Area. While the river route may be preferable, the road portion passes by many historical features that would be missed along the way. While this trail isn't fully suited for a thru-hike, there are camping opportunities in East Charlemont.

If you follow the road route you'll pass by a few cemeteries, a few fort sites, and other historical markers along the way.

This section ends when you reach the Shunpike Rest Area.
