Did the Swan Falls Loop on Saturday (June 23, 2018). We did the trail counter clockwise based off the map as we wanted to leave the easier section for the end which was good for us since my husband has a bad knee. There is still snow at parts once you get to the lakes section but it is melting so be careful where you step as it could break through. Sadly when we got to the top of Mt. Beautiful it was foggy so didn't get any sort of view. Took us 4 hrs to summit Mt. Beautiful and 3hr 20 mins back to the parking lot all at a steady pace.
