Just head to Selma Oregon then turn on Illinois River Road. Its at the 76 Station. Then just go about couple miles almost to the first trail head and the road is on the left. Cant miss it, it dropps in fast and steep. This is an old logging road or something so you will need a truck or off road something. I have not had to use my four wheel yet but for sure have needed the clearance the truck has. Lots of water pockets about a foot deep. If you don't have that option you can hike in pretty easy by parking at the Trail Head. Its the first Trail you come to after you turn on the road. This is however a serious hike coming out because the terrain is steep so lots of switch backs. Hope this helps, oh there is good gold on this claim.
