The best part about getting outside this time of the year is the sheer beauty of the landscape. Living in New England, we are fortunate to have many hikes in which to choose from. From the hearty, you can huff-and-puff to the top of some of New England’s highest peaks where the weather can be notoriously wild. Or you can stroll along the many paths that follow streams, lead to tranquil waterfalls or just walk along the coast Comfortable temperatures are now the norm, so if your ready to enjoy a hike, or an easy picnic adventure, below you can find some more information about the different options available for hiking in each state.
There is still time to enjoy the fall before the muted hues and browns start to take over and it becomes just a twig season. Sunsets come much earlier now, so preparation and timing are the key to having a good day.
