Just a quick in and out to introduce back country flying to a new tail wheel owner. No rutting or debris. Surprisingly no snow yet though I’m sure that’ll change this weekend. Very smooth. Feels as if it were dragged recently.

Landed to the south, slopes uphill. Just a skiff of snow. Departed downhill to the north. Clean and beautiful! Great strip, plenty of room.

There was two inches of snow when I visited. Surely slows you down on takeoff.

Runway is in great shape...hard as concrete!

Strip in good condition but it is a little rough. If there's a south wind taking off up is still a good option.


Camping at Cedar Mountain

Added by Wendy Lessig 1 month 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.
