Take the road that goes into Kimberly off of Addison Ave. Go straight threw Kimberly and follow the road till it dead ends at the foothills.(17 miles or so) Go straight accross and onto the BLM land and continue to follow the road to the top. You will see some radio antennas. The ridge is on your right or west of the road. If you turn on the top road before you go past the antennas. That is before you reach the top you go to the hanglider launch. This is were the best flying is. It is also were the picture is taken. This site works with a southwest to northwest wind. There is no wind sock or facilities so you will have to bring your own. The ridge is about 600 ft high. There is a road that goes to the bottom in case you have to land that nice slope ship down there.
