Hoodoo Meadows

Hoodoo Meadows Backcountry Airstrip



Hoodoo Meadows in 1952
Hoodoo Meadows in 1952

Hoodoo Meadows Airstrip, located in Lemhi County in the Salmon-Challis National Forest, is being added to the Idaho Transportation Department’s Division of Aeronautics (Aero) stable of backcountry airstrips throughout the state. Hoodoo Meadows Airstrip will become backcountry airstrip #32 for the State this summer. Idaho’s user groups — Idaho Aviation Association (IAA) & Recreational Aviation Foundation (RAF) — will fund and hire a contractor to clear the existing runway area of vegetation and tree in-growth in preparation for use by pilots and recreational user groups. The runway has become overgrown with vegetation due to the lack of a formal maintenance program.

The airstrip was originally built in 1936 and abandoned in 1985 due to lack of maintenance and unpredictable afternoon winds at a high elevation (8,200 feet). Despite this, there were no accidents recorded during the 50 years it was in service and open to the public. The runway is 2,200 feet long and about 150 feet wide – plenty big enough to accommodate take-offs and landings.

Hoodoo Meadows Runway
Hoodoo Meadows Runway Area
Idaho Dept. of Fish & Game, Idaho Division of Aeronautics, and the Forest Service started the process of re-establishing maintenance at the airstrip in 2016. Fish & Game wrote a letter to the Forest Service in Aug. 2016 supporting the efforts to re-establish maintenance at the facility to reopen it for public use. In October of that year, the Idaho Aviation Association also wrote a letter to Forest Service adding their support. In Feb. 2017, the IAA committed to donate personnel, equipment and resources to the effort. In March 2017, IDFG, USFS, IAA, and RAF (Recreational Aviation Foundation) meet to discuss “next steps” regarding Hoodoo Airstrip.

Efforts to maintain Hoodoo were shelved as the project was embroiled in budgetary discussions and scope-of-work questions. In early 2020, Aero renews efforts to address Hoodoo and add it to their list of backcountry airstrips. The Division of Aeronautics will provide continuing maintenance to the Hoodoo airstrip.

In March 2020, an opportunity for public comment was presented, with a special online webpage created to collect public comment over a three-week period. The webpage featured relevant information and documents for public awareness. Due to COVID restrictions on in-person meetings, this was all done online. Approval to move forward with the “acquisition” of Hoodoo was granted by the Idaho Transportation Board in April 2021 following recommendation by the Aeronautics Advisory Board. A Special Use permit granting the go-ahead on the project was signed by the Forest Service on March 3, 2023. A follow-up request to Dept. of Environmental Quality to determine if a Stormwater Pollution Prevention Permit was required was answered on May 11, 2023 stating that it was not needed to re-establish maintenance on the existing runway surface. NEPA requirements were handled by the Forest Service.

The Division of Aeronautics is under contract with the FAA to inspect 121 public-use airports in the state of Idaho. These inspections are conducted on a three year cycle. The inspection includes verification of airport data, services, and evaluation of runway/taxiway surfaces and navigation aids. Airport Facility Directories issued by both the State of Idaho and the Federal Aviation Administration are updated using information gathered during the inspection. Interaction with Airport Managers or sponsors during the inspection provides an opportunity to address safety and maintenance issues. Between inspections, airport managers or sponsors can assist in keeping airport specific data current by contacting the Aviation Technician to report changes or corrections.

Idaho Aviation Accident Score Card Annual ReportThe Idaho Aviation Accident Score Card (IAASC) provides details on all Idaho aircraft accidents that have occurred from the NTSB’s latest Probable Cause issuances. The source of data accumulated in this IAASC is compiled directly from the NTSB aviation database.

IAASC specifically includes total number of fatal accidents, fatalities, class of aircraft, pilot qualifications, and weather conditions at the time of the accident. In addition, IAASC provides an overview of Idaho aviation safety trends while final investigations of these accidents are being conducted by the NTSB. It will be published annually during the first quarter of the following year.
