“A steep slickrock descent that provides access to explore the White Rim Trail in either direction.”— Andrew Walters
Once you reach the wash you'll follow it down the canyon with cairns to reassure you are on track. Make sure you look around at the trail/wash junction to remember what it looks like for the climb back up. A few miles of nice wash running leads to the White Rim Trail just north of the Gooseberry campsites (permits required through NPS). There is no water on the trail, but there is a bathroom at the campsites.
From here you can either return the way you came or explore the rolling doubletrack of the White Rim Trail in either direction. Going right (south) from the Gooseberry Junction is very scenic and has a tendency to keep pulling you further and further to see what lies around the corner.
