What we love about the Mohawk Valley

The landscape that is the Mohawk Valley has so much to take in from the mighty Mohawk River, to the farms working the land, to the woods and wilderness accessible by many trails crisscrossing the valley. Living in Herkimer County, we love learning about its landscape and history to really be connected and live our best life in the Mohawk Valley today.
