NOTE: It is unknown if this strip is officially open. Check with appropriate authorities before using this airstrip.
The strip is in pretty good condition. There are no signs indicating that it is closed to airplanes and it apparently sees regular use. There are no tie-downs, or even any clearly defined parking spots. There is camping and a toilet there, but not too much else.
We found very accessible trout and steelhead water, both up and downstream. It is around 800' in length with a small hump 2/3 of the way from the upstream end, and about a seven degree dog-leg in the same spot.
Approaching from either direction, one must be just a couple hundred feet above the water when finally it becomes visible, which requires that you maneuver through the steep narrow canyon. I would not recommend attempting to land here unless you have developed good short-field skills and are comfortable maneuvering in tight terrain.
Approaching from upstream allows one to line up with a greater stretch of the runway, as the dog-leg is at the downstream end. Initially I tried to land downstream and went around because I was not aligned with the longer portion of the runway.
The field elevation is around 400' msl. There is no wind-sock, although there is a wind-turbine next to the railroad tracks, which will provide the wind direction and velocity if it is great enough to start the rotor turning.

Flew over, didn’t land due to winds. Looks in good shape
