Would anyone have a good first time route suggestion to ascend mount washington? Also how long does it take on average , I assume you allow an entire day....and get there early?

Whats the latest I could arrive on the mountain by and still make it up and down at the same time? are there any alternatives in case you get stuck with time running out of daylight to get back down say on one of the mt washington vans?

Mainly I just want to know what the best , and easiest way up for a first time hike up mt washington?

thanks
