Hiked it on 7/26/17. There was basically no snow. A few itty bitty spots but no concern at all. The bugs were pesky the whole day. Awesome view, awesome trail.

Some snow areas to cross. Very nice trail with a few small fallen trees. Saw a marmot.

Saw the famous Pinnacle trail marmot on my way back down. That alone was worth the sweat.

Good trail. Good views.
odd though... lots of flies. maybe it was the time of year we went (August), but we felt like we were constantly running from these huge horse flies that drove us crazy hahaha. so wear long sleeves and pants so you don't feel them landing on you constantly.
