Looking to do this run next year. I need to know if around early July would be to early for this trip? I am not sure of the snow in this area. Currently live in NW Montana and we get way more snow here. Has anyone done this yet and what time of year is this passable.

I live about 60 miles away... I always tell people wait until the second week of July before planning a trip up there and the third week will for sure be open. There have been a couple years it opened by first week...but not common. By the end of Sept. you are pushing your luck with snow again... if you are planning a later in the year... I would shoot for the first week of Sept. So there is your normal window for that trail. Second week of July to the First week of Sept. Some years it might be passable into October... but if you are coming a long distance to run the trail I would aim at those windows.
