Go prepared for warm days and cool nights and you'll be set for anything. For backpacking just about anywhere in the Adirondacks between early June and late August, I'm fine with a 35 degree bag. I do carry a liner just in case, and I've had the opportunity to put it to use with my sleeping bag on unexpectedly cool summer nights in the past.

Bugs won't be as bad as they are earlier in the season, but they'll also still be around. I'd be surprised if you saw more than the occasional black fly, but you'll probably see mosquitoes and deer flies (and possibly no-see-ums, although they seem to be very site specific- some areas of the Adirondacks don't get them at all). A head net isn't a bad idea, just in case.
