October. Good shade well past 7 Fall, started 0615. I don't know about 7 hrs, my 10yo and I did it in 11.5 leisurely, about 16.5 miles from viz center and back. Beautiful scenery you don't see from common trails. no real water yet, pack 200oz+ to be safe. Did not see a sole until hitting tram 9, someone coming from the pool followed. Good hike, not for beginners, my boy is well versed hiker.
