Travel 1.8 miles and turn right onto West Lake Creek Road. Be sure to stay on West Lake Creek Road as it winds through a residential area. Follow to Forest Road 423, a rough, rutted 4-wheel drive road and take it 3.2 miles until it deadends at Baryeta Cabins site. There is limited parking at the turnaround. The trail begins on the right-hand side just before reaching the cabin site, but there is only parking at the turnaround. There are no facilities at the trailhead.
