“This classic hike or backpack trip in the craggy North Cascades travels to a view of the alpine world.”— R Craig
The trail is in good shape, although a few spots have loose footing, and is easy to follow until you get to the boulders below the lake viewpoint. Then the trail gets vaguer, as evident by multiple trampled paths. To get to the lookout hut requires some hand-and-foot work to get over the boulders.
Thankfully, you don't have much risk of getting wet from the trail, as bridges cross the bigger creeks and boardwalks cross some muddy parts.
