This is a private strip and permission is required. Basically it is a pasture that doubles as runway. The grass can be tall and hazards can be hard to see. The surface is smooth and flat. In the Spring it had a little give to it that made it smooth to land on. Later in the season it may be more firm. Horses and burros are present so keep an eye out for them. The historic buildings have many artifacts still in them. Look but don't touch or take. This site is frequented by river rafters, so be courteous in both your flying and interactions with them. Most will likely not realize that this is an airstrip. The approach requires an approach from in the canyon with the strip not always in site. Use caution for canyon winds which can vary and be erratic. It's an absolutely beautiful location.
