Hiking/Camping Suggestions for VT, NH, & ME in August?

Jump to last reply

Hello! My partner and I will be in New England for 10-12 days in early August for vacation. We're looking for suggestions for best places to hike and/or to camp. We're day hikers (so no backpacking), but enjoy challenging hikes as well as more relaxed ones, and we're tent campers who prefer quieter, scenic spots over big RV camps.

We're also hoping to spend at least a bit of time on the coast--perhaps in Acadia--though we're thinking most of our time will be in Vermont and/or New Hampshire. We're also hoping to spend much less time in the car driving from one spot to the next than we will actually walking around. Besides hiking and camping, we'd like to get a taste of New England (especially fresh seafood, which is scarce in the midwest, where we live) and maybe check out some local breweries. We'll also probably want a day or two off from hiking, so if there are other sites we should check out--we especially like art, science, and history museums--let us know! (Please, no shopping recommendations, though, unless it's for food!)

We're starting from Burlington, VT, but are open as to where we end up for the flight home. Any travel advice/suggestions would be much appreciated!
