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.
Approach Considerations: Prefer approaching from the west, departing to the west. Out of courtesy to visitors of the Spiral Jetty suggest you keep your approaches and departures over the lake.
A little more growth than the last time I was here. Strip is in good shape otherwise. Pretty smooth. More growth on the two track both north and south tells me that the rancher traffic has decreased from what it was.
I did a fly-by and took photos. The airstrip looks to be in good condition. Did not land due to the ongoing sovereign lands discussion which will determine if we can someday land at Spiral Jetty again.
