Another class 4 downclimb may be required where a landslide took out part of a bypass trail. At the bottom of Youngs is a gorgeous waterfall. This trip is part of Hayduke Trail Passage 3 and should only be undertaken by individuals with extreme amounts of outdoor experience. It is a very difficult route.

    From Mexican Hat, drive north on highway 261, up the Moki Dugway (no trailers or RVs allowed), go west on highway 95, then north after a few miles onto 275 (towards Natural Bridges state park.) Use the Elk Ridge access road, turning left at the junction with FR268, until you reach sweet alice road, then turn left onto Sweet Alice road. Bring a GPS and a map.
