I was there mid august. From there to end of October is bugs, nice .lighting, temps, few people.
Actually the.bear incidents are not backpackers at all. I've had a few.friends attacked and mauled. The ones in the news the.last few years are either from hunters or tourist in and around their campers such as deaths last year and the Japanese man who provoked and ran. Backpackers are usually experienced, seasoned, knowledgeable than "tourist" etc.
If you want to hike you can get away and not see anyone. Read.Doug peacock s book "grizzly years", he spent ten years in the baackcountry and didn't see anyone.
