Wilderness Vagabond - Trip Report
Centered in the Dark Canyon Wilderness, Youngs Canyon Creek drops in a noisy cascade as it nears the Dark Canyon confluence. Here, grasses, reeds, sedges, willows and box elder take advantage of the moisture and limited amounts of soil. This is southeast Utah's remote canyonland country, where a dozen side canyons offer miles of spectacular sights in a wild wilderness setting. Two main tributaries, Wooden Shoe and Peavine canyons, feed Dark Canyon over its 40 mile length. Other side canyon streams are intermittent, but powerful flash floods occasionally sweep through the streambeds.
