The trailhead is in the middle of the one way Rainbow Basin scenic drive. The road is dirt but well graded. In areas it is bounded on both sides by rock with width for one vehicle only. The trail is not marked and you can make out many minor trails. Basically go to the streambed and hike up exploring any side branches of interest. The streambeds lead up into little basins that open up with some beautiful displays. Avoid this area in the rain as flash flooding would be a challenge in areas. Mileage will depend on how much you explore probably 2-3 miles.
