(sorry if it's a repost... didn't work the first time...)
My friend and I are going to Mt Washington on August 24-25, and have already booked our Friday night at the Clouds of the Lakes (we're planning to do the Ammo Trail).
Coming from Montreal, we are looking for a place to stay the night before (August 23), to be ready to hike on Friday morning, and where we could also stay on Saturday night .
The thing is, I'm getting confused after reading too much stuff on the internet! Where does the Ammo Trail start? I read that the loop Ammo-Jewell Trail is a good choice: would we come back at the same starting point?
I found the Highland Center Lodge & Shapley Bunk House, but I'm not even sure if it's close or not from the beginning of the Ammo Trail.
We are looking for a cheap place (dorm style), where we could cook (if breakfast is not included). In short, we're looking for a place to stay near the beginning of the trail on Day 1 and Day 3. We would prefer to avoid camping, since we would arrive late on Thursday (august 23), but are open to the idea if there's nothing else.
I was also wondering where to park the car and what would be the parking fee.
Thanks for you help!
