After you exit highway 340 onto 67, the right-hand lane merges near the road that you need to turn right onto. There is a really nice parking lot on the right hand side. Park there if you can. The trail head starts a short walk from the parking lot.
It was 97 degrees the day we did this hike and it was a difficult climb. The elevation from the parking lot is around 700 feet or so, with a total distance of about half a mile.
