Trailhead is off Foresthill Road just past the Foresthill Bridge.  Take I-80 to the Foresthill Exit.  Drive towards Foresthill, and in less than a mile, cross the Foresthill Bridge.  Just after the bridge, the trailhead parking area is visible on the left side of the road.  The trailhead is behind the green gate (#114) at the end of the parking strip farthest from the Foresthill Bridge.  There is very limited parking at the terminus in a dirt turnout off the Lake Clementine Rd, next to a green gate (#146).
