Great shape. Paved, not straight. Windsocks pointed opposite directions, as usual. Keep speed up with tailwind and let strip come up to you. Nice to use it when temps are down. Beautiful day!

Picnic at Hite

Added by Wendy Lessig 3 years ago

There is a shade shelter and picnic table at the Hite airstrip. Beautiful overlook of the confluence of the Dirty Devil River and Colorado River, which marks the upper end of Lake Powell. The Hite Crossing Bridge over the Colorado River is adjacent.


It is not a good place to camp, as the airstrip is adjacent to the highway. No water or services.
