Hiked in late October 2019. Awesome hike with very few people. We made it an overnight, camping at the one of the many lakes. Lots of places to get water (bring a filter). Beautiful fall colors and cool Bristlecone pines. Only caution is that is can be easy to lose the trail at times - especially on the bare rock areas. Definitely download the map to make sure you stay on the trail
