Hiked this in mid-June. No snow. Trail starts pretty mild with lots of thick overgrowth and progresses into a steep ascent with no breaks. There's a few views of distant snow capped peaks through some trees along the way. Why the 2 stars? The trail isn't very scenic, until you reach Scatter Lake at the very end of the ascent. The trail itself is in poor shape, no wildlife, and with frequent widowmakers and stretches of loose rock to keep weary of. The only reason I would do this trail is to ascend Abernathy Mtn. Side note- We saw mountain lion scat on trail.
