Hancock is a quiet, peaceful town about twenty miles long and three miles wide, bordered on the east by the famous Berkshire hills, and on the west by the rugged Taconic range.  

Hancock is the longest and narrowest town in Berkshire County.  The northern portion of the town is separated from the southern portion by a mountain.  One has to drive through a couple of towns to the east or drive west into New York to get from one end to the other.
