We drove up to the chairlift and had a lovely ride up the mountain. The majestic views were fantastic. We hiked around a bit, took a ton of pictures - rested at the little restaurant and enjoyed a snack and drink.

This is a difficult hike. About 11 miles round trip from parking lot to summit. Steep challenges on the way up and rocks/roots all the way down. It took us almost 7 hours.

We drove up 180 to the Grand Canyon--through twists and turns and when Humphrey's Peak came into view as a regal snow topped mountain--we caught our breathe. It was a beautiful scene on the horizon.

This mountain can be viewed from quite a distance. THe peak is snow-covered (at least in May it was).

There are National Forests around the base. last I knew of you don't need a permit. Check in with the Coconino NF folks or the local outfitter to be sure.

I don't think the snow lifts operates in the summer. And I know the lifts don't go up to Mt. Humphrey. You might get thunderstorms in July so just check the weather before you go on a long hike. Hope this helps.
