During our busy summer months, our most popular sites like Step Falls and other swimming holes can often experience a high level of visitation. Consider visiting during our shoulder seasons which are spring from April to June and fall from mid-October to mid-November. By doing so, you’ll likely to enjoy a slower pace and your visit will help provide our communities with year-round economic benefit. If you decide to come during our busy summer season, consider exploring during the early morning daylight hours to avoid the crowds.
Note: Hunting is a way of life here in the Mahoosuc region. Many trails and private lands are closed to certain recreation activities during deer hunting season in November. Wearing two pieces of hunter orange clothing is required for hunters and strongly recommended for other recreators.
For up to date information on trails closures visit Inland Woods + Trails.
Visit land management websites in advance of your trip to learn what activities are allowed on site at any given time of the year and what amenities you can expect to find. Information on land management websites should include information on temporary closures and what to expect when you arrive.
