A left turn down Cotton Wood Creek after departing runway 16 takes you in the direction of lower terrain. Runway 16 has a downhill slope. This airport can have a high density altitude. A circle with an arrow made from white rocks at the south end indicates the landing direction. In the meadow to the south, a similar cirlce with an arrow points down Cotton Wood Creek so you know which way to depart.
There are several hiking trails out of Cold Meadows. The typical scenery includes open meadows and woods of mostly lodge pole pines. There are numerous places to pitch a tent and water for filtering or boiling is available from the many local small streams. Take some warm cloths - like the name says, it gets cold here at night, even in the summer. Snow in June is possible. Mud and slush after melting snow can make for an interesting landing or takeoff.
