The Taconic Range is the low range of pleasantly wooded hills that runs along the western border of the New England States, separating them from the Hudson Valley of New York. The full extent of the range is not generally known--many assume that all mountains in Vermont are the Green Mountains, and that the Berkshires of Massachusetts are their own entity. But there is a definite topographic unity to this range, from its northern end near Lake Champlain to its southern outliers not far from New York City.
