Be Aware of Canyon winds and density altitude. Runway 14 has a 1.7% uphill grade and several uneven “humps”. Use caution, the southern 3rd of the runway has a rut developing (several inches wide and deep by 80ft long) in the center of the runway (see picture). Parking area contains old mining debris, park with caution. No water or facilities near the airstrip.

Dolores Point is in the best condition I’ve seen it. Very smooth.

Bill Winfield, son of Wally Winfield, completely regraded the runway this past summer. Bill also installed new "Keep Off Runway" signs and is maintaining the two windsocks. If you meet Bill, please shake his hand and buy him a drink. There are two significant bumps (hills really) at the south end of the runway but you still have nearly 2400' of fairly constant runway (uphill to the south). Good parking at two locations on the south end.
