I just did this hike 06.09.18. We did have to hike across some snow. I would suggest starting at the Ice Caves Trailhead and coming out at the Uhlhorn trailhead. If the Ice Caves Trailhead is closed you can start at the Crystal Cascades Trailhead and follow signs to Uhlhorn Trail. The signs are pretty off as far as mileage goes. We ended up with 28 miles instead of 20.

Great hike complete with two caves and high alpine plateau. Recommend later in season due to snow. If you visit the caves be sure to tread lightly as not to spoil them for others.
