Runway is very smooth, minimal ruts. Lots of vehicles using the road that crosses the runway, be careful.

Did not land. Over flew and could see a little snow still on the edges. A vehicle has left what appear to be some pretty good ruts on the east end and it’s still wet/muddy in that section. Still enough room to land from the west. Looks like it might need a little work when it dries up if it doesn’t get graded.

Overflew the runway today. Still snow covered but starting to melt off. Could see some dirt/mud poking through here and there. ATV Tracks everywhere.

Still snow covered. Was deep enough to not attempt with large tires. (skis only)

Completely snow covered. Did not land. Was not sure depth of snow. With skis or bigger tires different story.

Camping at Cedar Mountain

Added by Wendy Lessig 2 years 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.
