Hello Darynne,

no, this is not too late for hiking but it will be cold if it is cloudy so take a warm jacket with you. Most of the huts on the mountains are still open around Innsbruck:
- Arzler Alm (1067m) > opened until end of November
- Umbrüggler Alm (1123m) > in some cases even opened in December and January
- Höttinger Alm (1487m) > opened until 18th of November

If there is heavy snowfall the huts might close due to security reasons which is announced on their websites or facebook pages ;)
