This hike took us down White Canyon from FR319 for about 2.8 miles then up to some great views overlooking the canyon from the east side. The last 0.3 miles drive to where we parked on FR319 had some rough partially washed out sections requiring high clearance 4x4 so if your ride doesn't have that capability plan on adding about 0.6-0.8 easy round trip miles to this hike. The first 0.9 miles follows a 4x4 road down to White Water Spring where it ends. From their the hike follows the stream bed in the bottom of the canyon for 2 miles with about 3 bypasses around some rough sections of the stream bed. We were following the official gps route for this hike which if you follow it closely will help locate the bypass routes. There are some minor brush and cactus confrontations on these bypasses and a few of the bushes have thorns including some cats claw. There was a trickle of water coming out of the spring, just enough to keep the metal water trough full. The creek bed was mostly dry so no problems keeping our feet dry. Fresh cattle sign was abundant but fortunately we never stepped in any. Never saw any of the beasts, they were being as shy as the wild critters who we also didn't see.

Good views start at the beginning of the hike and just keep getting better, especially after climbing out of the canyon to the east rim. Following the east rim of the canyon provides relatively easy off-trail access to what are probably some of the best views in this wilderness.
