From Kanab drive East on 89 for about 9 miles, until you see a sign to turn left on Johnson Canyon Rd. Drive about 11.3-11.6 miles and there's a dirt road on the right side that you take. You have to cross a wash that's pretty sandy, so 4 wheel drive is necessary. There are a couple forks in the road. Stay left. With 4 wheel drive, you can park just down hill from the caves.
