Description: Horseshoe Canyon's airstrip is an improved dirt road that is comparatively firmer than Keg Knoll. This airstrip is one of the airstrips that has been included in the Emery County Public Land Management Act of 2019 residing in the proposed Labyrinth Canyon Wilderness Area. The UBCP is currently working with our contacts at the BLM and the County regarding access to this airstrip.
Runway: 3600 ft long x 40 ft wide dirt runway in good condition. Slightly slopes uphill to the north.
Approach Considerations: None.
The runway is getting a little overgrown. The surface area of the strip and the edges is about the same consistency…a little soft. A work party here would be a good thing to knock out some of the brush and put a sock up.
Small two track road. South end is pretty good with softer dirt. The north end has some big ruts that will cause damage. Plan to overfly and scope conditions and land on the south portion. I rolled tires to feel the dirt quality and it seemed softer but landable.
Runway in good shape after all the recent rains. Northern 1/4 of runway looks to have a rut along the western side but there is plenty of room on the southern end and the runway is fine.
Same condition as last report. Beautiful area. Winds can be a challenge. The day before this report, I opted not to land due to shifting winds on final.
