The field is most busy on the weekend mornings. Most flyers arrive between 8:00 and 9:00 AM and fly throughout the morning. Winds tend to pick up during the day, but are never very predictable.

The field is located in a small canyon and is basically surrounded by hills. The runway and covered areas are paved. The runway runs generally southeast to northwest, and is just a hair over 500 feet. The runway is 50 feet wide.

Winds are usually non-existent during the morning hours; light enough to fly small foamies. Winds tend to gradually increase during the morning and enter the field from the northwest and northeast; that is, you're usually facing into the wind, and it is blowing slightly from the left or right. It wouldn't be a bad idea to practice a bit on a simulator if you're new to landing on a runway.
