New England is also quite famous for its weather. One day it could be 60 degrees and the next could be snowing. Spring tends to be damp with rain and showers occasionally. The trails in areas will tend to be muddy. Summers have been hot and dry as of late. An occasional thunderstorm will disrupt an afternoon hike. Fall makes New England famous. The leaves turn bright reds and oranges in mid October into early November making for some unbelievably beautiful hiking. Winter varies from year to year. Some winters have been very mild with only a few snow storms and others have been relentless with northeasters and blizzards. Snowshoes are sometimes required in the winter months. Be sure to always check the weather before departing into the woods.
