Airstrip looks to be in decent shape with a two track road down it.  A good candidate for a windsock and maybe a work party if needed.

Randy Owen visited 1 year ago in a Zenith 701 with 22” tires

Runway is approximately 01/19 in direction, elevation 6800’. The southern 1900’ of the runway is in great condition with a road running lengthwise through it. The remaining northern part of the runway has deep ruts from the road and is rough and muddy in places. At the south end of the runway is a lovely camping spot with a firepit, grill, and a hitching post. This place is a hidden gem.
