Geocache Description:

Following along the Luce Line headed into Winsted from the east I was looking for more of the trail. A quick left at the main drag and there it was, sign and all, starting out behind the Winsted Airport.


With a 3,200-foot grass landing strip, and bituminous taxiways, the Winsted Airport offers a unique experience for both seasoned and new pilots.

Winsted Airport hosts a variety of airplanes, including single-engine and experimental aircraft. This airport offers pilots from around the area a chance to fly into an airport loaded with many of the amenities of a larger airport, without having to fight with all of the traffic.

The runway is a grass surface, east-west (09-27); the landing strip is 3,200 feet long and 400 feet wide. It will handle light twin engine and smaller aircraft.

So I guess if you really wanted to you could fly into this one, well it would be a bit of a walk from the airport terminal, but still it would be fun.



Keep your eyes peeled for airplanes!!


CACHE ON!!!
