Description: Mexican Mountain's runway is oriented west/east alongside the San Rafael River inside the Mexican Mountain Wilderness Study Area. Due to the sensitive nature of the location, pilots are requested to adhere to the UBCP's Code of Conduct to help us maintain our strong working agreements with the BLM. Reminder to all pilots this airstrip exists within a Wilderness Study Area. Motorized or wheeled conveyances are not to be used on the airstrip or surrounding areas.
Runway: 1900 ft long x 40 ft wide dirt runway in good condition. Slopes uphill slightly to the west. First 500' from the east is soft and has a "dark spot" that appears wet throughout the year.
Approach Considerations: Tall trees (30+ ft) on both sides of the runway present a hazard when landing to the east (downhill). Typically land to the west and depart to the east.
Amenities: Campgrounds and fire rings (please use already established camping\/parking areas and fire rings).
Windsock: Yes, located east of the runway.

Took my wife into Mex Mtn and the conditions were near perfect on the runway which is hard as concrete right now. The pull off's are pretty soft so I just pulled off the at the west end of the runway. Windsock is in good condition.
