Use the "search feature" at the top of the "Backpacking/Hiking/Camping" section
there is a lot of info on HST about this area. Here are just a few threads:

I second Tim, we did Deadman's canyon 2 years ago and had a great time.. We did a night up out of the canyon at Big Bird lake that everyone loved, if we had the time we would have spent the day wandering around to the upper lakes. Our trip was just under 60miles in 6 days.

I am planning a similar trip. We plan to leave from Maxon Trailhead and proceed up the Hell-for-Sure Pass trail to Devil's Punchbowl. From there we want to go to the Schoolmarm Lake, Six Shooter Lake, Wah Hoo Lake, Holster Lake area and spend the night. The next morning we plan to go down Bench Valley to Colt Lake and Guest Lake to the Bench Valley Trail. We will return to Maxon Trailhead via Big Maxon Meadow and Post Corral Meadow. I am really interested in hearing from anyone that has gone from Devil's Punchbowl to the Bench Valley via the pass just southwest of Mt Hutton.
