Arbitrary adventure along the creek until you've had enough.
The Forest Service does not have an effective plan in motion to keep out idiots. Beware of broken glass. Take a trash bag and invest ten minutes of your life picking litter up to help out.
Okay you might be asking why list such a short hike. Reason is it's pretty cool with the option to continue up to the Ellison Creek Cascades. If you're in the area it's worth the trip. There is no official trail. It's more a trail of use that skirts away from Water Wheel Camp Grounds. Yes the hike is short. So spend some great time wading the mini gorge. The area is trashed so take a big trash bag to clean the area. Seriously though, be careful as there is broken glass lying around the rocks. If you've been to the Salome Jug you will be amazed at the similarity, only this is much much smaller.
Since you're in the area head on up to my favorite Ellison Creek Cascades. You could even continue up stream another quarter mile from here to the confluence with Ellison Creek. Then go right, up and over to the Ellison Cascade oasis. You might also go check out the old Water Wheel giving the area it's name.
