Absolutely Gorgeous trail. For the most part you can follow the ski trail markers and just use alltrails to check which way to go. Some of the sections that show water are not so much lakes as really wet mud. If you have waterproof shoes that would probably make it much more comfortable but still not awful for the most part.

Download the map beforehand. The trail is not well marked and it would be very easy to get lost. Fantastic views, and good clean mountain air. There's nothing better. Use a good bug spray and apply it liberally. If you use the cheap stuff, the mosquitoes and knats consider it a seasoning.
