Hi, we are making a roadtrip in september. We were planning to drive from Troy to the Hartford area via the most scenic drive. I did some Google Mapping and had 3 options:
1) From Troy-Mohawk Trail to Gardner,MA and down to Spencer, MA....Hartford.
2) From Troy-Mohawk Trail to Athol,MA and down via 32A to Hardwick,MA-Ware,MA-Hampden,MA-Hartford.
3)From Troy-Mohawk Trail to Orange,MA and down the 202S to Holyoke and pick up the 5S to Hartford.
What would be the best(most scenic) option in your opinion? We love to drive, and stop every now and then in a town to walk around and do some shopping/eating. We also like easy to moderate hikes.
Considering the distance,we could easily drive this in one day.
Thank you for your time!
