While the number seems big, 500 hikers constitute just a fraction of MW visitors a busy summer weekend! It's a big mountain with a lot of different trail options, so people get spread out pretty well. If you're concerned about the number of hikers and trail congestion, think about the following:
-- Try some less traveled trails
-- Hike on the west side (Ammy/Jewell, for instance)
-- Start super-early and end early... we'll have stuff going on at the tent starting at 3 PM, along with sponsor tents, vendors, etc. Music starts at 4.

See you in a few weeks!

Last year Subaru was taking pics at the summit and the line was down to the cog tracks. Not sure if they are again this year. Consider taking your "summit shot" on top of the tower instead. I'll pose for the Subaru shot when IT'S MINE AND I'M SITTING IN IT!!:D

Hey Chris -
I'm a bit concerned about you carrying Charlie. Why? What if he decides to wear the kilt? :eek:

I can think of a few trails up the rock pile where few people will be. Just have to hike few extra miles. Nelson Crag, Chandler brook, or Wamsuetta. Problem is you have to make sure you are down in enough time to make the after the climb party. It will be a busy day on Tucks especially if it is a blue bird day.

Being down in time for dinner is very important.

To avoid crowded trails, consider starting your hike the night before, and arriving at the hermit shelters around 9 or 10, then hit the trail by 7am
