...go to the real Dagger Flat, not the one on the auto trail. You get there by hiking through Dog Canyon and then south a ways before heading back west across the ridge lines...
I think Devil's Den is the best route through to Dagger Flat. A couple of notes. There will be good water in tinajas in Devil's Den itself. The route to take is the south rim of the gorge. It is a VERY easy route. Dagger Flat is not flat. If you have hiked Onion Flat, Tornillo Flat, etc. you will be surprised. This terrain is complex, undulating, often overgrowna dn can be quite challenging. That said, if you are there at the right time this spring it should be unbelievably beautiful. Make sure to take lots of pictures. Within Devil's Den itself there are some pour-offs, and though challenging, there is nothing dangerous. Just do a dayhike into the gorge, and then carry your packs around to the right.
TJ, you need to read the "Has anyone been here" thread in Q&A, if you haven't already.
