Overflow it low level. Someone with bigger tires, better STOL, and more backbone than me will have to be the one to land. Doesn’t appear to have been landed in years. Large erosion ditch running the length of the strip, lots of brush. Sock pole is still there but no sock.

Land-able but rough. Brushy, bumpy, and lots of surface variation.

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.

Loose dirt with minor small growth. East 1/3 has a bit of a rise in the center with very small ruts the width of mains. Overall good condition and great place to explore.

Lots of flat rocks scattered along the runway make it bumpy, but no problem for most aircraft, even our 206 with wheel fairings installed.

Soft, level dirt. Landed runway 11. Windsock appeared to be wrapped around pole, or torn. Departed runway 17, which is just as good condition as 11. Runway 17 appears to be 2000-2400’ long.

Awesome, secluded spot! Runway narrow, some rutting
