Packing for Fall in Maine
How to Plan the Perfect Fall Trip to Maine
You likely already know about the glory that is fall in Maine, here’s what you need to know to plan the perfect trip.
Fall in Maine is crisp and sometimes chilly, with temperatures in mid-fall ranging from 33 F to 58 F, perfect for cozying up by the fire. Fall weather can vary across the state, so it’s always best to be prepared!
What to Pack
With early fall having warmer days (average high around 70 F) and cool nights, it’s a good idea to bring layers that you can easily remove for optimal comfort. As the season progresses, amp up your bundling-up efforts with a warm coat, scarf, hat and gloves to keep you toasty. Warm or cool, rain is always a possibility, so toss in your muck boots, raincoat and umbrella.
Your fall adventures in Maine require proper gear, too. With hunting season in full swing in September, it’s a good idea to bring along brightly colored clothing to help you stand out from the trees. Additionally, good hiking boots are a must — tennis shoes can slip and slide. Consider adding a pair of binoculars to your adventure pack — fall is an ideal time to witness the migratory birds passing through.
