Hi friends, can anyone provide input on a packgoat-friendly route into lower Dark Canyon? It appears that Glen Canyon rec area is now closed to packgoats, which would rule out the Sundance trail.
I'm wondering if there's a passable route into Dark cyn near Black Steer Canyon or similar. Or maybe a route down Youngs canyon from the north?

Thanks for any input!
 
This spring I went in Trail Canyon from near North Long Point, which is an official trail. It's a fast way into the canyon (versus Woodenshoe). The trail was rocky with some exposure, but should be fine for goats. It might be too far upstream for you though. You might want to repost this in Trip Planning or Backpacking to get more eyes on it.
 
Youngs is a bit of a scramble. Ditto on Trail Canyon; that should definitely be doable.
