The Board of Aeronautics built the Pinehurst State Airport in 1953 on a use permit from the Bureau of Land Management. In 1987, the existing runway was improved. The airport is located south of State Route 66, in the community of Mount View in the Siskiyou Mountains, east of Ashland.
The airport is located near the Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail and provides direct access to the Siskiyou Mountain range. Although situated near a State Route, the airport is somewhat remote, with the only access provided by this State Route as it winds through the mountains. The airport is sometimes used by aircraft trying to land at Ashland Municipal Airport but are unable to do so due to dense fog; these aircraft include express small package carriers. As such, Pinehurst State Airport is designated as a Level 4 airport.
