    What's the best time to hike the East Coast Trail

    My wife and I will be thru hiking the East Coast Trail next year and would like an idea what you think the best month to do that is. We do not mind it being chilly and we also do not mind it being muddy but she hates mosquitoes. Any suggestions?

    And any suggestions on getting a ride to the southern terminus from the north?

    Stay away from the spring months until after June to avoid black flies and mosquitoes. If it was me I would do it August through September. I can’t help out with any ride suggestions.
