After the two trails join together, there was only one muddy spot. There is one dry stream crossing where the trail has been washed away. Simply look for the cairns and you'll know exactly where to go. Just before reaching the lake, there is a very short section of trail that is getting quite overgrown because of the full sunlight it receives.
My one suggestion before heading out on this trail would be to do a little research about the area's mining history. The creek, the lake, the mountains, and the trees are all interesting to look at, but knowing the history makes the hike even more enjoyable.
