The road to the parking lot is right across 260 from Kohl's Ranch Road. Once you cross the highway, the parking lot for hikers is clearly marked and is .7 miles up on your left. It is also has clear marking to get to the trailhead. I get lost easily and it was not a problem. What was confusing on this hike was all of the colored flags we saw. There were orange, red, blue and yellow. They mostly lined the path, but sometimes they were about 5 feet off the path???

This is a beautiful hike. Plenty of water (see pics). There were a few steep parts, but they didn't last long. Towards the end of the hike, when you see the sign for Horton Creek and make the right to walk the 400 feet down to the creek, you need to then turn your back to the creek and hike up the steep hill (you'll see the path going up and to the right) in order to reach the place the water comes out of the rocks. It only takes a minute and is well worth it.

Ran into quite a few scouts filling their water bottles from the place the water comes out of the rocks.
