access to attic with new insulation

Last fall I had rock wool blown into my attic for insulation. Although I should have considered it sooner, I would like to add an exhaust vent to a bathroom. In order to access that area from above for installation, I would need to cross the attic (going through the new insulation).

Can I just walk through the rock wool? Do I rake it back in place when I am done? I am concerned about making sure I step on the ceiling joists when I can't see them.

Any suggestions?

Just feel where you walk for sure when done just fluff it back up. I have had a few of my guys go through the ceiling Its not fun.Some small boards will help. You are going to vent this fan on out side and not in the attic I hope .
