The White Roost canyons are great, casual canyons packed with a lot of beauty with easy access. They were some of the first canyons I did in the Roost back in the early 2000's, and I have done both forks several times over the years. While both forks have their charm, the main fork is likely the better of the two and a bit longer. Most groups will be able to do both forks comfortably in a day.

A note on camping: The trailhead is an old drill hole and offers OK camping on a large flat area. If it is at all windy, I would recommend NOT camping at the trailhead, it can be brutal. Aside from the drill hole, there aren't many other great camping options. The Flat Tops, on the drive in, can offer the closest somewhat sheltered camping.
