I want to avoid billions of hikers to ensure tent spaces. Has anyone hiked the trail in early June? How crowded are we talking then?

Shera,

Early June is almost the beginning of the season (the very beginning being around half of May). In that you "might" be lucky and find few people (even if more and more trekkers are walking the trail every year). However be aware that around that period snow could still affect the higher parts of the route and the weather "might" still be unstable.
