Trailhead is on Lake Clementine Road.  From I-80, take Foresthill Exit and continue on Foresthill Road towards Foresthill for 3.2 miles; turn left on Lake Clementine Road.  A tiny parking area is ½ mile ahead on left at a sharp right bend in the road.  Watch for a dip when entering the parking area.  After parking, walk back along Lake Clementine Road to trailhead you passed on the right just before the parking area.  (An alternative parking area is ½ mile back up Lake Clementine Rd – you passed it on the right just after turning off Foresthill Road.)
