    Mt. Washington, NH trip

    Hi All, I'm heading north to do a two nighter up by Mt. Washington with a couple of friends. We plan on doing Mt. Washington one day by doing tuckermans and lions head, but am curious of any suggestions for a first / second day addition.

    Any insite is appreciated, since I've never been up there before. Thanks!

    Not sure when you are planning on climbing, but you might want to double check before whether the Tuckermans trail is open. I believe it is closed right now due to snow/ice.

    Boott Spurr up and Lion's Head down has been my favorite combo so far.

    Thanks Tom. Tuckermans was, in fact, still closed. We ended up getting there late Friday night and hiked up to Hermit Lake. Day 2, we summited Mt. Washington via Lion's head and went to Osgood Campsite via sphix trail and great gulf. Day 3, we looped back into Pinkham where we parked. Great time, beautiful, and heck of a challenging mountain!

    I ended up hanging my hammock in the shelter at Hermit Lake and was able to find some trees by the tent platforms at Osgood.
