Wright and Algonquin are challenging and not very muddy. Iroquois was a little muddier but has the same beautiful views. Marshall is muddy and the views are nothing special. The stream bed that runs up the Marshall trail is pleasant to hike along. Mt. Colden from Colden Lake is the toughest portion - steep and exhausting. (Perhaps the four peaks initially climbed contribute to this.)
