Snow free. No axe needed. Recent CFI trail work, they were there working as I was there.
Road is in good shape, but you'll want decent 4x4 with some clearance to get there. 2 river crossings, 12-16 inches at the deepest.
Some camping at the trailhead and probably 3-5 campsites just below the trailhead (within .25-.5 miles). Other campsites further down the road.
We were quite pleased with "Restless Spirits", a restaurant/bar in Lake City after we came out and I'd suggest it over the other food choices in town. Its at the head of the park in the center of town.
