Use the coordinates 38.920547, -120.696675 to find the spot -- most maps apps don't pick up the intersection.

This is mostly a forest road, which makes it a good wide trail through picturesque forest. You'll get to the creek with no problem. Supposedly there's a way to a waterfall, but I was only able to go a short distance upstream before it became impassable -- just saw a bunch of two foot waterfalls.

You can extend this hike as far as you like past the creek, just keep following the forest roads, but there's nothing particularly different to see that I know of.

Sporadic cell signal at the start and all along the trail -- can't be relied on but you get lucky sometimes.
