Work to restore the runway at Dark Canyon will hopefully begin soon. In the meantime, the airstrip is in a rough condition. Please exercise extreme caution.
Low pass overflight only. Large brush and clump grass. Wouldn't land without big tires and STOL capable airplane. Road that runs parallel could be landed just as well or better. The Dark Canyon North strip is better condition.
there are 2 strips at or near Dark Canyon. The satellite image associated with this strip (on this site) shows the strip to the south along Woodenshoe RD at 37 49.420N 110 05.341W. The Dark Canyon Plateau strip is north of the canyon at 37 53.772N 110 05.573W and it was pretty rough when I landed there years ago. Which one is going to be fixed up?
Landed 10/5/19. Moderate crosswind. Runway is fairly rough with clump grass and some rocks. Land uphill on 8; depart 26. Marginal, but landable. If loaded, continue on to the east past some mild humps to get more takeoff room. It’s not smooth, and it’s remote.
