Year-round reasons to come

Wakefield enjoys a typical New England climate, with very distinct seasons. Winter is cold and snowy. This is the time to enjoy cross-country skiing, shoe-shoeing and snowmobiling on snow-covered forest trails. When the snows melt in spring, walking the forest trails to the sound of rushing meltwater and migratory birdsong is the perfect way to greet the sunshine. Summer temperatures don't get much above the low 80s, still comfortable for hiking, biking and enjoying the local lakes. Fall is perhaps the most spectacular season, with nature in her finery of pinks and golds, the trails a riot of autumnal color and the air thick with birdsong once again.
