This gorgeous hike is entirely snow-free except for one short, avoidable section right as you gain the ridge. Basically one switchback of the trail is covered, but you can cut up 20' of scree and stay on dry ground. No ice ax, traction or gaiters necessary. Total summer conditions. Thanks to San Juan Ron again for the lift to the trailhead!
