 Carter Notch Hut
Hi all, trying to get any info on the Carter Notch Hut as far as busy times of the year. Hoping to do a late October, weekend before Halloween, weekend trip and was curious how busy the ht might be at this time of year. Any info is appreciated.

Probably not terribly busy that time of the year. It is also in self-service mode that time (actually they convert over next week), which means you get a bunk and use of the kitchen to cook your food yourself. No full service. http://www.outdoors.org/lodging/huts/season-dates.cfm

I would still recommend having reservations before you go if you weren't planning that already.

What he said. Generally not too terribly busy, but watch the reservation board and if looking more full than not, plan to be there early enough to grab a good bunk and set up for cooking time.

I am with what everyone else said. Make a reservation. I have done a weekend trip up there during that time of year. Its a great time. Some good day hikes over to Carter Dome on Mount Height.

P.S. The story goes that it's haunted. Most of the Caretakers know the story. I have herd some weird stuff up there in the middle of the night that others did as well that was unexplainable. There area a few stories in some books about it. And I am sure you can find some info on the internet.
