The middle fork of Maidenwater is a great canyon to practice your natural anchor and/or down climbing skills. The canyon can be downclimbed/up climbed by the highly skilled, but most will do 2 or 3 rappels. This fork is much shorter and easier than the South Fork.

For the non-technical, parking at the road and hiking up the bottom as far as you are comfortable is a great outing to stretch your legs. The section of the canyon just above the road is very good and easily accessed by the non-technical.
