Scenically, not worth the 9+ mile slog on the Jeep trail. The only portion that can be classified as hiking/climbing is the final pitch - a ~.5 mile scramble across a ridge and an ascent up the tales slope.
If possible, drive to the 11k trailhead at the creek crossing (4wd a must!). This saves a few miles of very rough walking and some elevation gain.
