From Cave Creek Rd and the 101:

Head North on Cave Creek Rd.  Sonoran Desert Drive is a left turn intersection at a stoplight.  You will pass Pinnacle Peak and Jomax before hitting Sonoran Desert Drive. 

Turn left and proceed about 6-7 miles.  Turn right at the Apache Wash Trailhead sign (hard to miss).  There is a big parking lot, a ramada and restrooms.
