Schoharie Crossing State Historic SiteThe Mohawk Valley has had a long history as a transportation corridor between the eastern seaboard and the Midwest. In colonial times, both Native Americans and European settlers used the Mohawk in its natural state. Flooding often halted travel in the spring and fall, while lack of water was problematic in the summer. The river's many rapids and waterfalls presented additional challenges. Portages, in which the boat was emptied and carried along with its goods around each obstacle, were a necessity in the river travel.
