Strip is visible.  Erosion also visible on the southwest 2/3s.  Northeast 1/3 portion where the road runs through it may be useable.  Looks to otherwise be overgrown with brush.

Wendy Lessig visited 1 week ago in a Piper PA-12 with 26” bushwheels tires

Erosion ditch runs down the middle of the airstrip. Airstrip surface is full of small sagebrush, but too big to land & roll aircraft tires over. This airstrip is a good candidate for an airstrip work party. Fabulous canyon overlook views at south end of airstrip and along west side. The dirt road that leads into the airstrip is a better place to land than the airstrip itself at the moment.

Regan Richmond visited 2 years ago in a C-185 with 8.0 tires

Flew over it low level. Someone with bigger tires, better STOL, and more backbone than me will have to be the one to land. Doesn’t appear to have been landed in years. Large erosion ditch running the length of the strip, lots of brush. Sock pole is still there but no sock.
