Runway is in great condition, no ruts, bumps or rough patches, felt super smooth.

RWY was smooth and dry.

Flew over, did not land. Still largely snow-covered with vehicle tracks, but looked like a great place!

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.


Camping at Cedar Mountain

Added by Wendy Lessig 4 months 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.
