The trailhead for Northgate Peaks is located about 15.5 miles up Kolob Terrace Road at Wildcat Canyon Trailhead. Park at the Wildcat Canyon trailhead and follow the Wildcat Canyon Trail for about a mile where you will turn left to continue following the Wildcat Canyon trail as it heads towards Lava Point. After another tenth of a mile, you will find a sign that directs you to the Northgate Peaks Trail which breaks off southward. Follow the Northgate Peaks Trail to a place about a quarter mile ahead where there is another fork in the trail. From here, you can either turn towards Russell Gulch or you can continue on the main trail. You should continue on the main trail straight ahead and you will find yourself in an area filled with lava rock that offers a stunning view of the Northgate Peaks and of North Guardian Angel.
