Description: Mineral Canyon's airstrip resides in the Green River canyon just south of the Bowknot Bend. Mineral Canyon is one of the three back country airstrips included in the State's "FLY UTAH Passport Program". To learn more, head to their website.
Runway: 2000 ft long x 40 ft wide dirt runway in good condition.
Approach Considerations: Airstrip resides inside a canyon with rapidly rising terrain within 1000 feet of the airstrip rising over 1000 feet above the landing surface.
The first 100' or so of 32 is very soft. There is a cairn with a white pole sticking out of it indicating approximately where the soft area begins. If taking off north recommend not taxiing beyond that cairn/pole.
Flew into Mineral Canyon and the strip is in good shape. Some grass growing on the south end but nothing too high. The surface was pretty firm and I hardly left any imprint in the sand. Minor ruts in the middle but nothing too bad.
