Big Pine Rd vs Eureka Valley Rd

Just want to confirm...

Greenwater Canyon

We have some questions about Greenwater -we can only hike up to 8 miles max round trip; which direction do you recommend to get to the good stuff -from Greenwater Valley Rd or from the road near DV Junction? How far can we get in a rental Jeep [as far as closed roads]?
