This actually ended up being 32 miles for me according to my Samsung watch. Did it in a day took around 13 hours. Lots of rock scrambling, very remote, no water, but great hike all in all.

Used this trail for a four night backpacking trip, great fun. Water was running in Salt Creek, but only because it had been raining the day before. Salt Creek canyon and Angel Arch were beautiful. The veiws from Squaw Flats to Peekaboo were breathtaking. Some parts of the trail were a bit challenging to navigate in packs. It was very hard to get up and down the ladders.
