From Highway 1 in Fort Bragg, drive East on Hwy. 20 about 5.8 miles, turn left on Rd. 350 (marked with a sign for "Camp One"), go all the way down to the campground area (about 3 miles) and turn left on to a bridge, this road is Rd. 360, go one mile on 360 to the closed gate; this is where the hike starts, but you have to walk up the road about .4 mile to get to a bridge crossing North Fork of South Fork Noyo River; just as you get across the bridge turn left where a big rock sits, this is the official Trail Head (with sign).
