Road access:By minor roads from the A470.
Parking:Alongside the road on the verge.
Take-off:Access to take-off is by foot only. A short sharp carry, up the face of the hill. The rigging area is large, and the take-off is friendly.
Landing:The top landing area is extensive and quite flat.
Paragliders can bottom land on the open hill alongside the road (A), but there isn‘t enough room to safely land a hang glider there. The emergency bottom landing field for hang gliders (B) is at the bottom of the hill to the right of take-off. This field is small and the landing approach difficult. Please don‘t fly a hang glider unless you are sure it‘s soarable, or you possess the necessary skills to land in the emergency landing field. Please don‘t land in any other enclosed fields, or climb walls or fences.
