Road is in good shape, except for the spur road to the TH (200-300m). If you feel like driving it, get a vehicle capable of crossing deep-ish water bars.
Generally, the trail is somewhat bushy in spots. The trail by the lake is well trodden, but quite overgrown. It feels like bushwhacking.
Access to the upper bowl was fine, if you don't mind some low 5th scrambling. Pick your descent wisely, we ended up in heinous B5 bushwhacking with 5th class moves. We were pressed for time, and just did it. It was relatively short, which was fine for me, but I've heard of a relatively bush free route between the upper bowl and upper statlu lake. It's more circuitous, but may be preferable to some.
