Initial planning for a 4 night trip in Mid June. Shuttle from Alum Cove parking area to Newfound Gap. Ice Water Springs - Peck's Corner - back to Ice Water - last night at Mt LeConte.

With the exception of Mt LeConte what can I expect in terms of shelter capacity at that time of year? North Bound thru hikers will have started mostly in March and April, having said that what should I expect?

Would I be hassled by Mr. Ranger for hammock camping outside of the shelters?
