I know I didn't start at the top, but I don't think I'd classify this one as canyoneering. It's just an off-trail hike in a drainage. It was raining pretty hard while I headed toward the area so I decided stay in the car and keep driving. Since I ended up at the bottom of the canyon where FR 122 meets FR 42, I decided to just hike up from there.

This was a nice exploration. I would have liked to see a little more water running, but was not disappointed with the scenery. It's rugged and remote. Not wanting to retrace my steps, I climbed out of the canyon and made my way back on some old closed double tracks.

Access notes: On the upper end access via Cougar Park is permitted via FR 3108, and a little farther west on FR 122V. On the south side of the upper canyon, FR 728 from Coleman Lake is closed just past Mac Tank. Where I started on the west end, both FR 122 and FR 42 are open to vehicles, but high clearance is an absolute must on 122 (no Subarus!) plus 4WD required on 42, which is a miserable road to drive.
