The Hilton Creek Lakes Trailhead is on Rock Creek Road, 9 miles west of Highway 395 and Tom's Place. Soon after you pass Rock Creek Lake on your left, watch for a small parking lot on the right. Restrooms and information signs are on the left side of the road. The sign for the Hilton Creek Lakes Trailhead is angled so that it is hard to see for anyone coming from Tom's Place.
