Went about 4.5 up trail from south end. Lots of stream crossings, turned back when lost trail. Very nice hike until that point, if you don't mind getting feet wet. Saw another group at TH but no one else on trail. South TH easy to get to with 2WD. Consider long pants for the brush.

If you start from the top, it's real hot for the last 3 miles.
If you start from the bottom, it's uphill.

Some of the biggest pine in the forest are in this canyon and a very nice hike.
