I live in north-central Vermont. We usually have snow in May and our last
frost is generally the first week of June. Black flies are bad both times,
but better in July/August.

I used to live near Manchester, VT. It's still mud season on the trail in
May/June. My daughter says you are not even allowed on the trails until
Memorial Day.
