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.

Amenities: No

Windsock: Yes! Just installed!

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.

In great condition. Few bushes right on the approach end but still leaves plenty of room to operate.
