Hi, I thru hiked the AT las tyear but one thing i really felt i missed out on was seeing the colours of new england in the fall. i was hoping on coing over to do the LT but wanted some advice on time of year. I'm really looking for a bit of a balance on getting those beautiful colurs against having to put up with potentially awful weather. I was thinking late sept but wanted to hear peoples thoughts.
apologies if theres another thread on this but both the end to end guide and the long trail guide are recommended. dont really want to buy both. whats the best?
