Trail was mostly dry (or easy to stay dry steeping on rocks) except for the boggy area right after you split off from the Arapaho Pass trail and get on the Arapaho Glacier trail. When you hit the big muddy section of the marsh, the trail appears to go straight but there also doesn't appear to be a great way through. Instead of crossing straight, look slightly to the right and you'll see where the trail *actually* continues. To get there, go right and circle around the south/east edge of the marsh using the well-placed stones to avoid stepping in the soggy mud water. Using that path and staying on the stones is a win-win: dry feet and no social trails!
