Confidence Rating: Accident investigation report completed and information captured
The pilot reported that he was attempting to land on the private dirt airstrip which is about 1,500 feet in length and 25 feet wide with surrounding hilly terrain. The first landing attempt resulted in a go-around due to the aircraft altitude and airspeed were too high on final approach. During the second attempt, the pilot stated that he was unsure if the landing gear touched the surface before the end of the airstrip and the initiation of the go-around. The pilot stated that when he pushed in the throttle to go-around, the engine produced no power. The pilot lowered the nose of the airplane, however the airspeed decreased and the aircraft collided with the terrain and trees. During the on-site inspection of the engine and subsequent engine run, no evidence of a mechanical failure or malfunction was found.

Probable Cause: Loss of engine power for unknown reasons. Trees and rough/uneven terrain were factors.
