Ballard Road starts in Buckhorn Canyon, which can be accessed via LCR 27. From County Road 27, take the Pennock Pass/Buckhorn Canyon road (LCR 44H) approximately 10 miles west to Forest Service Road 129 (Ballard Road). This intersection is clearly marked with a street sign. Drive up Ballard Road approximately 3 miles to a large clearing where a sign points 'trail'

Note: While Ballard Road is moderately maintained and is (to the TH) by no means a jeep road, good ground clearance is necessary.
