Question Proposed 4 day circuit from ADK Loj

I am planning a mid-week hike for the summer and am looking for any advice/comments on the following:
Day 1 - Adirondack Loj to Lake Arnold for first night's camp. I live in WNY and would plan to leave very early and likely arrive at the Loj around mid day on a Monday.
Day 2 - Lake Arnold to Mt. Colden then down to Lake Colden. Set up camp there planning for two nights.
Day 3 - Summits of Algonquin and Wright then back to camp at Colden.
Day 4 - Cold Brook Pass to Indian Pass Brook. Camp at Rocky Falls.
Day 5 - Quick hike back to Loj and long drive home
My thought is that I would avoid the super heavy crowds by doing this mid-week and that Algonquin and Wright would not be too bad without the big pack.
I've read conflicting reports on the Cold Brook Pass trail - if anyone has hiked it recently from Colden to Indian Pass trail - is it open/passable?
Thoughts or comments???
