Where are we?

Goshen is located in the eastern foothills of the Berkshires in western Massachusetts approximately three hours west of Boston and two hours east of Albany, NY.  State Route 9 runs through the town’s center.  State Route 112 intersects with Route 9 just west of the town center and runs north.  There are 26.7 miles of secondary roads that are hilly and winding with little or no lighting.  30% of these roads are unimproved (dirt).  At 1,200 feet above sea level, drivers face more challenging winter driving conditions than typically found in the nearby Connecticut River valley.
