That stretch never really dries out. Once every few years, the DEC sends a trail crew in to redo the bog bridging and things are great for about a season, and then the soils (mud) get shifted around by water and conditions are worsened until the next cycle of meaningful maintenance.

I haven't hiked it recently myself but I did speak to a group that came through there a few weeks ago that was camped at Feldspar. Sounds like you can expect the usual- floating bog bridges that disappear down into the water when the weight of a hiker presses down on them.

The hike in to Skylight from Upper Works is a little bit longer but also comes without floating bog bridges or loss of elevation from Lake Arnold to Feldspar. These tradeoffs may or may not make this a desirable alternative for you.
