    Complete the quest picking up the trail.

    You get the quest from Scribe Rothchild. he will reveal the location of the Citadel's Vault-Tec terminal. Once you've looked at the terminal Rothchild tells you the location of vault 87 and suggest you go to Lamplight Caverns.

    Once you get to Lamplight you will be stopped at the gates. Once inside you have 2 options.

    1.Passing through Super Mutant infested Murder Pass; if you chose this option, you must first speak with Mayor MacCready or Princess to get the gate to Murder Pass open.
    2.Asking Mayor MacCready about alternate paths will reveal a locked back door to Vault 87. You must ask Joseph to restore power to the computer terminal before you can use it. The door and terminal (average difficulty) are located in the Great Chamber.

    The FownGot it the most random situation ever. I was going to the Little Lamp to get my speech achievement with Knock Knock, just out of curiosity, the mayor mentioned about Vault 87, so I tried to check it out, got into the murder pass, killed a few mutants, and when I got to the end, the achievement got unlocked.

    The most random achievement unlocked for me in this game, didn't have a clue what I needed to fulfill the Picking up the Trail achievement, but I'll take it.

    bobbydandits worth noting that if you want to take the alternate option and use josephs computer terminal, you need to have a science skill of 50.

    and joseph is just found wandering around little lamplight, i think if you do this quest in the 'right' order and approach lamplight after having been to the citadel and talking with the scribe and then the mayor of lamplight and enquiring about the computer, there will be a marker that indicates josephs location.
