The service road to get to the trail took at least an hour. We traveled by truck which is highly recommended for this trail. We arrived after sunset and had to do some night driving for at least 30 minutes. It was cold..very cold in November. I remember scrambling to find wood so we could get a fire going asap.

The trail down the canyon was a little difficult to find without a waypoint. Once you find the trail marker/head it's an easy way down and it's almost impossible to go off the trail. It was quite a hike down but the views are amazing. I'd say it took about 1/2 hour to get to the bottom and about 45 minutes to climb/hike up.

We parked at MGRS: 12S VD 6282 2369 which is about as close to the trail as possible.

There's was little water at the bottom from where we ended up. I'm thinking we were either at the end of the trail.
