Directions help please!

I have someone coming into the Reno airport on Friday evening and they need to get to the trail head of the Rubicon on the Cadillac Tahoe side of the trail. Can someone help me out with good driving directions?

Please!

Hey Kev, I don't have exact directions but the best way would probably be to head west on 80 into Truckee. Take 89 south and the turn is in Tahoma. The road is call McKinney Rubicon(Springs) Rd. Follow that road to the staging area and it's and easy trip in from there. If you want have the person call me I can describe it better over the phone. You have my #.
