Description: Cedar Mountain's airstrip rests atop the similarly named Cedar Mountain, providing panoramic views of the Wasatch Plateau, Book Cliffs, Henry and La Sal Mountains.
Runway: 2000 feet long x 40 feet wide, well maintained gravel and dirt.
Approach Considerations: Southern end of the runway ends with a nice 1,500 feet vertical drop. Runway slopes to the south.
Runway had some ruts from OHVs doing donuts, but they were not bad, the rest of the runway was great, windsock is pretty beat up. Hot and high DA during my visit, was glad that wind favored downhill takeoff.
The previous reports are accurate and very helpful. Runway 15 slopes uphill and therefore the favored runway for landing. I would add that a swell exists at the touchdown area of runway 15 so plan the touchdown a couple hundred feet from the end of runway 15 and avoid the surprise bump. The airport is a worthy stop having an awesome view from the runway.
Camping at Cedar MountainAdded by Wendy Lessig 1 year ago
The south end of the Cedar Mountain airstrip is a spectacular place to camp. The camping area overlooks a 1,000 ft drop-off, with a panoramic view of the Book Cliffs and Green River valley. Bring your own aircraft tie-downs. Fire ring exists, but use caution, as the Cedar Mountain airstrip is frequently breezy.
