Description: Strongly suggest obtaining local knowledge prior to landing for the first time. Landing strip currently leased to Utah Back Country Pilots. UBCP requests no man-made artifacts (drill bits, tools, etc.) be removed. Emergency water and runway grading tools in shack.
Runways: RWY 9 is uphill 1.38% and has displaced threshold due to overgrown brush. East end 50 feet higher. Touch down point may be difficult to determine by the first time visitor. Threshold markers should be present.
Additional runway 18/36: 845 feet long x 50 feet wide, very soft dirt. Slightly uphill to the north.
Approach Considerations: Unfamiliar pilots should positively identify the touchdown zone as the runway appears to be longer than it is. Recommend land east, depart west.
Amenities: Parking areas are at east end and very soft.
Windsock: Wind sock west of miner's shack.
We flew down to camp for a night. The strip was a little soft from recent moisture, but really not much more than normal. So much dew the next morning! I’ve never seen dew in the desert like that before. We smoothed over a few spots in the runway while we were there with the tools in the shed.
