The trail is accessible year round, but for bikers, we are coming to the best season of all. I rode this trail in late September last year, and the temperature was perfect. Unfortunately, it was a bit early for fall colors, but it was absolutely gorgeous, nonetheless.
The foot traffic was moderate near Manchester, but I enjoyed plenty of solitude after just a couple miles on the trail. Expect to see lots of water, trees, and small critters. There are a couple places to stop for refreshments, but in general the trail is fairly remote, so make sure to bring along water, snacks, & emergency supplies like rain gear and a basic tool kit.
