    You head towards Hermit Lake on the Tuckerman Ravine trail. About a half mile after you pass the Huntington Ravine trail a fire road comes in from the right. There's usually a sign there sending you up this road. The Lions Head winter route starts just about opposite the avalanche cache that's a few hundred feet in. That's generally the point to don crampons as it gets steep quick from there.

    As Billy said - also the winter sign is a bright orange - easy to spot.

    If you're looking at the bigger picture, the trail begins at Pinkham Notch Visitor Center off NH-16
