To get to the trailhead for Pt. 7740, start in either Truckee or Kings Beach (Kings Beach is on the shore of Lake Tahoe). Highway 267 connects these two towns. Take Highway 267 to Brockway Summit. Turn onto the paved road that heads southwest and is about 75 linear yards down from the summit on the Kings Beach side. The road is indicated only by a T intersection sign (we call it Mt. Watson Road but I don't know what the official name is). Follow the road for a mile or two until you see the gate for Tahoe National Forest road 16N73B. The coordinates are 39.25023N, 120.08669W. Park along the paved road, walk around the gate and begin hiking up the gradually sloped and well maintained 16N73B road. Note that the Tahoe Rim Trail crosses the paved road within a few hundred feet of this spot, so hiking up it is another option.
