Description

Easton airport was constructed in the 1930's by the federal government as an emergency field for DC-3s crossing the Cascades through Snoqualmie Pass. It was acquired by the state in 1958 to preserve it for future use. Easton remains as an important airport on the eastern approaches to Snoqualmie and Stampede Pass. Perhaps one of our most visited airports, it has the ingredients to make it a one-of-a-kind airport. This field has medium intensity lighting coupled with ample room for parking, camping, hiking, and just relaxing in the quiet of nature. There is a stream at the east end of the airport which runs as clear as any you have seen. A small store is approximately one mile south on the access road.

The runway is 2,640 feet of turf, with a 300 foot displaces threshold on the west end. Field elevation is 2221 feet, and density altitude problems can be encountered in the summer. Trees surround the airport and there are trees in both approaches close in. Deer, elk, and motorcyclists also enjoy the airport. The surface is somewhat rough, and will be soft when wet. We recommend an overflight to check field conditions and obstructions. The airport is generally open from June 1st to October 1st.

The airport is visited by approximately 30 aircraft per month. It is an excellent facility for mountain flying / soft field practice. Glider and flying clubs frequently use the field during the summer.
