Primary access is via FS-403/Boulder Creek Road [(B)(4) on Pages 137-138]. Shortly after crossing onto State of Idaho lands, a convoluted system of logging roads is found on the north side of the road. After the second cattle guard on Boulder Road, look for a left turn that immediately starts uphill. Stay on the main road until it reaches the top of the ridge in about 5 miles. The road eventually leaves the ridge and traverses south. Look for a hard, steep left turn. UP until this point, a sedan can make it. Turn left and park in 50 yards, then walk the last bit to the unmarked trailhead- you can drive that, but you risk removing your mirrors on very tight trees (not just brush).You will need a map to navigate these roads to the unofficial Shaw Twin Lakes Trailhead. Follow the trail to the lakes.
