Fall is more than a season; it’s a state of mind.

The slowly chilling weather and the changing leaves outside force us to confront the fact that our comfortable days in t-shirts and shorts are numbered—if they aren’t already gone. But somehow, the season makes up for the loss of warm weather and outdoor swims.

In reality there is plenty of hiking, running, biking and, yes—even camping, left to do as long as you have the right equipment and information. The scenery is even more beautiful in the fall, so read up on our tips for fall fitness and other outdoor activities (Oktoberfest anyone?) and enjoy the last few outdoor days without a ski jacket.
