Directions from Sierra Outdoor Recreation
After exiting I-80 south, follow Crystal Lake Road east 0.4 mile to Lake Valley Reservoir Road. Turn right (south) and follow for 1.1 mile then turn left on Mears Meadow Road #19. Follow 4.2 miles and turn left (east) on dirt Road # 38 to tiny Huysink Lake (private). Continue by lake at 1.0 mile and persist for another 1.0 mile on the steepest, narrowest part of road. Sedans are okay if driven carefully to dodge rocks. In fact, a logging company upgraded the road, probably in 2006 or 2007.
