Can anyone recommend a trail for Mt Adams, I was planning on getting on the trail around 1pm and then hiking to a shelter and finishing the hike to the top and then down to the car the next day.

I'm going to bring everything I wore for Mt Washington last Feb to be on the safe side.
I was looking at the lowes path as it passes two shelters, but if someone has a better suggestion please let me know.

Lowes Path is a great option.

Just did that same trip a couple of weeks ago. Here's the link to my trip report in case you missed it:

Assuming there is still a snow pack I would strongly suggested that at that time of year you avoid anything near Kings Ravine, especailly if the wind is from S-W

the snow will probably be very soft with the warm temperatures, so I'd say poles and snowshoes would be better...
