My sons and I hiked this trip first of July. Too soon for the trail conditions. Visible trail almost non-existent. We had to climb over hundreds of down trees, camp sites washed away, we were the first over Park Pass; had to kick in our own steps and glassade down the back side, (used ice axes on passes) streams and creeks crossing challenging. Without our handheld GPS it would have been more difficult. We did it in 5 days even with the trail conditions. Don't attempt this trail if you are looking for helpful trail signs, this is for the more advance backpackers. Overall the scenery was fine; was used to the High Sierras or Mr. Rainier area.
