Description: The Spiral Jetty airstrip appears more like a rutted two-track road that runs along the shoreline of the Great Salt Lake almost 2 miles north of the famous Spiral Jetty. The airstrip lies on State Sovereign Land to the west and Private Land to the east. 

Runway: 1250 ft long x 13 ft wide hard rutted two-track road with a slight slope towards the lake.

Amenities: No

Windsock: Yes! Just installed!

In great condition, the goat head thorns are getting bad out there so be careful if you have thin tires, the Desser 4 ply will puncture with these.

The strip is in great condition. The addition of the windsock is nice…once I found it. It’s kind of hidden on the northeast side of the strip in the bushes.

First time in. Thanks to those that put up the new wind sock! Surface condition good. Only thing I saw was some 4' brush/bushes on the eastern half that are only 15-20' centerline. High wing clears them, but they're a distraction on the rollout. Surprised to see 8-10 cars parked further down at spiral jetty on a Wed... avoid to be friendly.

Put up a brand new windsock here! UBCP work party. Strip is in good condition, just a two track road. Horses in the vicinity came to say hi.
