Rt. 2, Clarksburg MA
Welcome to the Golden Eagle Restaurant, located on the historic Hairpin Turn on Route 2, the Mohawk Trail, in Clarksburg.
We offer a breathtaking panoramic view and a casual dining atmosphere.
Ever since the Mohawk Trail was opened from Charlemont to North Adams on October 22, 1914, there has been a building on the Hairpin Turn to accommodate travelers, with souvenirs, food and drink for those who stopped to take in the scenic view of the Hoosac Valley and surrounding Berkshire Hills. The elevation of the Hairpin Turn is 1,700 feet above sea level.
In 1980, John and Lynn Morris purchased the Golden Eagle Gift Shop & Restaurant from the Canedy family, which owned the Hairpin Turn location from the time it was opened in 1914. Since then, there have been several structures on this site. This building has been standing since 1958.
