From Carson City, NV: Drive south on Highway 395 through Minden and Gardenville to just south of Coleville, California (If you get to Walker you have gone too far). Turn west on the Mill Canyon Road (Pack Station Road) and go up the hill staying to the right at the first intersection. It's about 7 miles to Rodriguez Flat.

Mostly down hill on the way in. Would recommend staying the night and exploring the East Fork Carson down past soda cone.
