Did this in mid-September 2016. An awesome moderate hike with stunning campsites & views one you get up to the basin. A great overnight, and would be awesome to spend an extra night doing day hikes out of the basin. We did, however, get a few inches of snow overnight--not that surprising at that time of year.
