The best way to hike this route is to follow Jerry Schad's route. Hike up Rockhouse Road to Hidden Spring. Take the old Indian path up the side of the canyon, left of Hidden Spring, to Jackass Flat. Hike the south side of Jackass Flat west and take Butler Canyon back to your car. It's about a 10 mile hike which shaves almost 5 miles off of this suggested route. Lots of walking through sand but easy to navigate.
