Over the past two summers, my son (t282828) and I pieced together a full descent of this magnificent wilderness with mostly day hikes, capped off with an overnighter for the final, remote central section. Day trips were accessed using nine different entry/exit points, including (from top to bottom) Willow Valley, Clover Creek, Tom's Creek, Maxwell #37, Tramway #32, FR142E (Point Trail), Calloway #33 (FR142B), Powerline Crossing (FR142A) and Cash Tank/White Box Hanging Garden (also FR142B, note that there are two non-connected segments in this area with the same designation - EDIT: this road now signed as 142J). The final trek from Cash Tank down to Bull Pen Ranch required two full days to cover the roughly 16 mile distance over terrain so rugged we averaged less than one mile per hour. Bittersweet to have no more new stretches to discover, but there's so much variety and beauty in this canyon that a lifetime wouldn't be enough to experience it fully. Flow on, WCC!
