Jessup River Road to Pillsbury Lake

Just wondering if anybody knows the general condition of this trail. Any other info about the lake itself and the lean-to is greatly appreciated as well! Thanks.

The road is in excellent shape up to the trail head for the Pillsbury fire tower.

The trail in to Pillsbury Lake follows an old road. The there are some washouts up to the height of land between Pillsbury Mountain and Blue Ridge, and the far side down to Pillsbury Lake has some wet spots, but otherwise it was in good shape as of last year.

It's a bit of a climb uphill to get to the height of land, but the climb back up from Pillsbury Lake isn't bad at all.
