Canyons are inherently risky. Flash floods occur without notice on sunny days. Technical skills & surrounding topography knowledge required yet does not eliminate risk.
The perennial segment of upper Conner Canyon, located in the backdrop of Armer Mountain.
There's a large pullout with an empty covered signage board below the trail - there's a path leading directly from it south that just heads up to a nearby hill with no real view, head up 288 a couple hundred feet and there's an obvious 4WD/ATV road to follow down. It has enough growth along the sides to provide some shade in the morning and evening. It's a fairly moderate grade and seems to get far more wheeled use than booted.
Once down in the canyon following the creek was surprisingly easy - very little spiky/poky plants and while being very lush it's not overgrown. Water levels were low enough we were boots dry in the creek itself but would hop out of it occasionally and never had any issues with a bypass. There are some fallen small shelters near where the 4WD road meets the creek along with some scattered trash, but it feels very pristine below that.
Didn't encounter anything I'd consider canyoneering, but we didn't explore the full canyon. The route will get you down there. :)
