I don't want to be a pain in the a##, but I really don't like hiking on crowded trails. I love having the trails to myself. I will be with an experienced partner, so I won't be in any real danger if I bug out. We didn't make any plans yet because I wanted to ask you guys first about it.

trails less traveled by
My suggestion now would be the wamsutta trail. This trail comes out of the Great Gulf and is an amazing trail! It is one of the less crowded trails and a very enjoyable hike. I would do Wamsutta up to the top and take Boot Spur down. This is a wonderful loop. If your looking for an over night than lake of the clouds could be added into the mix with no problem seeing that it is so close to the Boot Spur trail. This is the loop I will probably do for seek the peak.
