My friend Matt and I will be making the trip up to Mount Washington from this friday to the following monday. We'll be staying (hopefully) at hermit lake. We plan to get up there at around 2 or 3 in the afternoon on friday and hopefully be up at the shelters by 5. I've made the hike a few times in the winter to ski tucks and the other hotspots on the mountain, but I've never stayed over. What my question is, even though it's difficult to answer, is will there be spots at Hermit Lake still open by the time we get there on Friday? I know its very dependent on a few factors, but is it usually alright to still get spots even late day? Thanks to anyone who knows.
