McKay Flat's runway surface is in poor condition due to overgrown vegetation. A good candidate for rehab and a windsock due to nearby slot canyon hiking options.
Landed on the road to get boots on the strip. There are sections where a big tired cub would be okay, but the strip in general is pretty rough with a lot of hidden mounds, logs, rocks, that are not easily seen. The road is in spectacular shape though lol. I wonder if the county would consider grading this next time they grade the road. I would consider this airstrip closed to anything other than big tires. Also there was an Antelope heard near and cows.
On this day we flew over the airstrip as part of an airstrip survey trip with one of the rec planners from the Price District. We did NOT land. The airstrip doesn't appear to be in too bad of condition, but we need to get on the ground, or have someone with big tires on a cub type aircraft to go check it out and report back to us. The road next to it is in great shape and regularly gets graded. My plan is to get down there and land on the road to go and walk the strip. Watch out of wild horses. There was a large herd hanging out on the south end of the strip. From the road at the north end of the strip that leads off to the southeast you can reach a point to access the Baptist Slot, the deepest slot in the San Rafael Swell. It would take about a 3-4 mile hike/bike ride to the access point.
