The Mohawk River is a 149-mile-long (240 km) river in the U.S. state of New York. It is the largest tributary of the Hudson River. The river is named for the Mohawk Nation of the Iroquois Confederacy. The Mohawk flows into the Hudson in Cohoes, New York, a few miles north of the city of Albany. Mohawk River State Park covers 107 acres in the vicinity of Lock 7 and has a boat launch as well as hiking trails.

The river begins in Oneida Countay, flowing southeast toward Rome and the Hudson. Other cities along the Mohawk are Utica, Little Falls, Canajoharie, and Schenctady. The Mohawk meets the Hudson at Cohoes, north of Albany. The famous Erie Canal was built to connect the Mohawk with the Lake Erie.
