Started very early. The park currently accepts 80 % capacity only. The gates open at 6 AM and we were there at 6.05 AM MT and were about the 7th car in line. Once we got up front, they only had 4 more parking spaces available for the Audubon trailhead (there is another, easier trail that starts there).
Weather was beautiful and we passed about 2 couples and then were alone on the trail. We started at 6.45 AM and summited about 8.30 AM. Spent some time up on the top to enjoy the view and the silence. Upon our decent, we saw a lot of people trying to hit up the summit (you can also hike into the park which ads about 6 m RT to your treck). We were back at the car at 10.45 AM.
No snow on trail, everything super dry. Beautiful views of RMNP and Longs Peak.
