Description: Dirty Devil sits on a raised flat-top mesa immediately east of the Dirty Devil River.

Runway: 1200 ft long x 18 ft wide runs the entire length of the mesa. Airstrip can be soft at certain times of the year.

Approach Considerations: Short runway with no safety overruns on either end. Recommend landing north and departing south due to slight uphill grade. First hundred feet of landing distance has in the past been softer than the majority of the landing surface. 

Amenities: None. Parking area at the northwest end of the landing surface can only accommodate 2-3 airplanes.

Windsock: Yes, but watch out for cacti around the windsock!

Ditch on down-river end of airstrip should probably get some attention.

The runway and parking are are in great shape. Sorry, I forgot to check on the windsock. Landing upstream, the very threshold of the runway looks like it has some ruts or washout, but probably less than 50’ in it is fine. The runway is fairly firm right now, but the edges & parking area are a little soft.
