Description: Fremont Island's upper airstrip rests along a ridge that slopes up at both ends, and has downward sloping terrain on both sides of the runway. The airstrip resides on State-owned island, who we are currently in talks with restoring our access to the two airstrips. In the meantime, the airstrips are closed until further notice.
Runway: 1900 ft long x 10 ft wide dirt runway that was once a four wheel drive trail that is in good condition. Slopes uphill on both ends. First 500' from the south is rocky.
Approach Considerations: Weather station on the south end of the runway. Typically land to the north and depart to the south.
Windsock: Yes, located west of the runway at the north end.
