1. From Placerville in El Dorado County take Hwy 49 north .8 miles to the Hwy 193 junction; veer right onto Hwy 193.
2. Go 3.1 miles on Hwy 193 and turn right onto Rock Creek Road.
3. Go 5.5 miles on Rock Creek Road to a dirt turnout on the right where you'll park; this turnout is located about 100 feet past the Rock Creek bridge. To reach the northern edge of the claim, walk to the end of the short, downhill road that veers off to the right from the dirt turnout.

Google maps takes you directly there, same directions Jeff posted. I parked in the same turnout he mentioned about 100 feet past the bridge on the right side of the road. The claim starts right after the bridge so you can hike down past the power plant pretty easily (everything is graded nicely).

Just a quick overhead (aerial) view of the claim for those of you that are "visual learners" like myself, as well as marking out the recommended "Green Gate" access point mentioned by several others: The "Green Gate" access point is on the south side of the road, right after you cross the bridge and it comes up on you fairly fast on you.
***No vehicles allowed past the Green Gate - So it's all on foot from here on out!***

>>>FYI - The "GPAA access point" marked on the GPAA map of the area (marked in Red here) requires an extremely sharp & very hazardous descent of about 45 degrees down the hillside - If you are not a mountain goat, I wouldn't advise it! (Particularly as there is no cell service in the area, and getting injured is highly likely.)

I parked right at the green gate.. When I got there I noticed another parties claim sign..O walked down the gravel road until the I saw the picnic bench..I then saw another private claim sign next to the picnic bench still no marker for GPAA claim? So I never ended up mining

Visited this claim and managed to get to the south side around the Hydro Dam. Creek was flowing pretty good, but it fluctuated a few times and affected my sluice box. Couldn't find a way to cross the creek, but once the water goes down it should be manageable. Got zonked out on the gold, but it was an adventure.
