Landed northwest to south east with a couple survey passes before hand. In the middle by the windsock there in a decent size rut probably from water runoff or traffic on a dirt road that cuts across from the east to west there. North side seems to be a bit smoother and more straight. There are some tie down anchors near windsock. the boulder male trail and a couple other trails nearby which brings in a few hikers so exercise caution with traveling vehicles. A couple locals were very happy to see a plane there also.
I stopped in to see if the strip had been graded yet. The county was supposed to touch it up this spring as well as add some filler to smooth out where the road crossed the strip. So far it’s not been done and I’ve put a call in to make sure they are still planning in it. Overall the strip is in good shape. Some vehicles have been on it and left some ruts on the north end, but they are on the edges and the few that are in the middle are minor. Locals continue to use the strip for camping, horseback riding, shooting, and ATV activity, so make sure to give it a good look before landing.
The BLM rec planner sent me the following email. We are working with them to get the strip graded. He had this report on the strip condition. I did fly over it a week or two ago and it was covered in snow. Not sure if it’s completely dried out or not. Use caution for the north end where ATVs have torn it up, which is common. “ I did take a drive out to the Airstrip today to assess the current condition. The south end appears to be in excellent shape. Yes the vehicle two track is well worn and it seems like the surface is well in line with the unused space of the airstrip. In the middle where the road crosses the airstrip there needs to be some work done to this area to level it out. I know this is always a problem site. The north side was in great shape, however someone has decided to use it for playing in the mud and has torn it up. This does need to be addressed. Unfortunately this airstrip has become more of a playground by locals so we are seeing some new impacts on the airstrip.”
Boulder Mail TrailAdded by Brent Rowser 2 years ago
Boulder Mail Trail is a 15.4 mile moderately trafficked point-to-point trail located near Escalante, Utah that features a river and is rated as difficult. Beginning in 1902, pack mules clattered along a carved sandstone trail, hauling letters and packages between Escalante and Boulder Town. The Boulder Mail Trail was a vital link between Boulder and the outside world until 1940 when Highway 12 was completed. https://www.alltrails.com/trail/us/utah/boulder-mail-trail
