Trail head has this marked the Duncan trail. You follow it north until you descend northernly into the bottom of ravine. Go east toward the river. Its easy to get off trail as you start the east descent toward the river.
I found myself having to back track a couple of times because of a couple 25 ft drop offs.
NOTE: If your on trail you don't have to do any repelling.
lots of cactus not recommended for dogs. Bring a water filter and spend a night or two.

Interesting terrain, especially driving to the trailhead.

The trail continues on all the way down to the river. Beware the climb back out. Especially in the heat of day. Do not recommend bringing dogs if the temp gets above 75 and sunny. The ground gets real hot. Bring water a plenty.
