The cross-country flight originated from New Mexico on the morning of the accident. The private pilot's final destination was the accident airport, with intermediate stops for fuel in Utah, and Idaho. Reportedly, the pilot and passenger were planning on camping at the accident airport and returning to Albuquerque later in the week. The airport is located in mountainous terrain at an elevation of 4,933 feet above sea level. The Airport/Facilities Directory (A/FD) recommends landing on runway 17 and takeoff on runway 35 due to rising terrain south of runway 17. The aircraft wreckage was located approximately 900 feet beyond the departure end of runway 17. Multiple trees with fresh scarring were noted beyond the departure end of the runway approximately 230 feet north of the wreckage.
Probable Cause: The pilot's failure to maintain clearance from trees. A factor was trees south of the departure end of the runway.
