We hiked this trail in the last week of August. We prefer a late season hike as there are fewer mosquitos and the trail has had all summer to dry out from the spring rains. However, the rain does return in the fall in this area and it can start to arrive by late August/September. So that would be my only concern. During our 5 days, the first couple of days were wet but then the weather was glorious for the balance of the week. Of course you would need to ensure the trail is also open and that the plane and boat are available to provide you with the needed transportation.

Many thanks for pointers. Nootka Air will fly us out, but we'll have to get water taxi (maxi water taxi) for way back. More expensive(about 550.00 for 4 hikers), but will take us back to Gold River. MVUchuck sounded like they were only running until Aug 31/17, and timing of their runs wasn't going to fit well with our schedule.
