Cold Meadows gets most of its use in the fall by big game hunters. Fishermen willing to brave the 4 or 5 hour hike to Black Lake likely will be rewarded with very large cutthroat trout. No camping amenities at the airstrip.
Airstrips have basic navigational aids such as windsocks and runway markers and some limited user facilities. Typically located in remote settings but may be accessed by low-standard road.
