A couple of years ago I tried this from the other direction;  headed for Grapevine Spring from the road.  Had to give up due to the heavy growth in the wash that leads to the spring.  If you can find a starting point that avoids the brushy area you should be fine.  Once you clear the hills,  I'd head for those two big hoodos you can see to the west of the main road, they're worth seeing close up, then head straight east to the road.  If you do it, please post some pics and a description for us;  should be a really nice hike

Just go do it! Cross-country hikes are the best...you get to see things the tourists who stick with the trail guide never experience.
