Cabin Creek Airstrip

FAA Code: I08 Latitude: 45.1435244
Elevation: 4289 Longitude: -114.9289897

IAA District 3 - Director Joe Grubiak This one-way, dirt & turf Forest Service airstrip provides access to good fishing in Big Creek and to big game hunting in the surrounding hills. It is located in the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness. The airstrip surface is subject to erosion both from water and prop wash. Water bars were installed across the runway many years ago to minimize water erosion. Prop wash continues to be a problem as soil is blown from the surface, exposing the water bars and rocks. The Forest Service recognizes that at some point, it will have to do major work here.

Steep enclosing terrain recommend use only by mountain proficient pilots.
