Description: Angel Point is a widened county road that's hilly surface prevents you from being able to see one end from the other. Angel Point is one of the three back country airstrips included in the State's "FLY UTAH Passport Program". To learn more, head to their website. Rudimentary parking area at south end of north/south runway.
Runway: 3500 ft long x 30 ft wide hard dirt runway with rolling hills along the length of the landing surface.
Additional Runway: 1800 ft long x 30 ft wide running 03/21. Crosswind runway suitable for high performance STOL aircraft only.
Approach Considerations: Due to its nature, recommend pilots be cautious of vehicle traffic. Typically land to the north, depart to the south. Strongly suggest that on arrival an inspection of the landing surface plus a view for any vehicle traffic approaching from the east as sloped runway can hide distant traffic travelling on landing surface.
I landed and took off on the crosswind strip.
Landed south and departed west/NW. Overall in good shape, looks like the summer rains have left a few depressions on both runways. Take care with a subtle rough spot about 3/4 of the ways on the N/S rwy. Seems like some of the turnarounds are more rocky than in years past so use caution and good soft field technique.
All in good shape.
Disabled aircraft off the end of Runway 02. Checked inside and looks like crew must have been picked up by vehicle recently. Landed Rwy 20. Small ruts about 2/3 down runway, but mostly smooth and firm. Use cation for road traffic coming from the west (Angel Point Trailhead). We did not see any dust from a truck due to some gusty winds and luckily avoided a truck that was headed east about 2,000' distant when we departed Runway 28. Could have been a close call.
I landed to the south and on the east side of the runway where it slopes up there was a small gully from the recent rains. I was able to stay to the right/west side with no issues. Windsock looked ok but was flopped back on itself. It looked like the next strong wind will probably fix it.

There's a few hikes / canyoneering opportunities west of Angel Point. More info available at https://www.roadtripryan.com/go/t/utah/north-wash/fallen-angel-canyon
Camping at Angel PointAdded by Wendy Lessig 2 years ago
Great camping spot at the south end of the short runway/road, overlooking the canyon that leads to the Dirty Devil River. Great view! Bring your own aircraft tie downs, water & firewood, as well as shovel for toilet purposes.
