When to go 

Warmest time: May – September (July and August being the hottest) makes this time ideal for hiking. September and October have warm daytime temps but they drop significantly at night so bring layers. 

Late April – early June is the most picturesque with spring blooming and some stray snow capped mountains from the winter. July and August will have some spikes in prices.
