Proceed west on Route 2, the Mohawk Trail, through North Adams, and you'll soon reach a distinctive, 180-degree bend in the road. This famous Hairpin Turn affords phenomenal views of the Hoosuc Valley and the sculpted Berkshire Hills. Of course, if you are the driver, you'll need to maintain a tight focus on the road as you navigate this dramatic curve. Parking is limited, but we luckily found a spot in the lot near the Golden Eagle Restaurant
. If you've worked up an appetite and have time to linger, dinner here may be the perfect end to your Berkshires day.
