In my experience both wheeling and backpacking and camping in the wilderness areas campgrounds around Shaver Lake, Wishon, and Courtright, I would say that there are a lot of bears all the time except into October. Or, I should say that I have seen people's food get broken into at all different times during the summer. They don't seem to discriminate. But if you are concerned, just get some bear canisters that the backpackers use and keep you food in that, outside of your vehicle (they will rip your doors off trying to get in... even if they just see a cooler let alone smell some food).

I'd be more concerned with the heat and condition of the trail. If you go too early, like late May to early June, there could still be a bit of snow or a touch of rain, which would make the trail a real pain in the a$$... unless that's the point. But from late June - August, the trail should be dry... but hot during the day and cold at night. I'd say you have to worry about dust, but the entire 30 miles is rock boulders, so that shouldn't matter too much.[/b][/i]
