1000 feet of runway has been cleared by the UBCP. Overrun is available as well but brush gets bigger at the ends. A new windsock stand and sock have been put up as well. There are some nearby slot canyons to explore as well as wild horses.

Gary Hilley visited 1 year ago in a Super Cub with 31 tires

My first time back since our work party a couple months ago. A surprising amount of vegetation as already started growing back. About 30-50 wild horses in the area. Pretty neat to see!

Went out with Gary Hilley and drug about 1000 feet of the runway. By establishing use and showing reports to this strip, it will help our ability to have the county come in and grade the runway. We also put up a brand new windsock and windsock stand. Runway still has some bushes and clump grass in the runway, a few bumps, but the big stuff we took out by hand and with the drag. We think with a bit of time and another drag day and the strip will be pretty good. Ended up with about 1000 feet usable, with more room for emergency runout. BIG thanks to Gary and his family for coming out with the drag and tools and making this happen. Saw lots of cows and wild horses in the area, and lots of traffic going down to hidden splendor.
