Beautiful hike, the maps took us on Andersen Creek Rd so that added an extra 45-50 mins to our drive. We tried to look up and alternate route but were unsuccessful. Luckily on our drive back we took a different, much easier route. Head towards Jacksonville, turn left on S Calif. St then turn left on S Oregon St continue on S Oregon until you come to an old mining town consisting of a 3 old wooden buildings. At the cross road turn left on little Applegate, take little Applegate for a few miles until you see sterling creek rd then continue on sterling creek for about 2.5 miles until you reach the trail head which will be on your left.
