“This is an easy ride leading to a great view and sharp drop off with a history of hang glider launches!”
— Abe Ferraro
This is an easy flat trail with great views. It's a good place to stop for a bite to eat.
This area requires a $6 vehicle entrance fee or Empire Pass from May 1 to October 31.
You can access this trail via the Perimeter
or Long Path: North
Trails and it is a pretty easy flat trail. From the Perimeter
Trail, follow the well marked trail with magenta blazes for about 0.4 miles until you connect with the Long Path: North
. The park has good signage, and you'll take a right onto a doubletrack trail that is both the Hang Glider Road and Long Path trails. At about 0.6 miles you'll see more signage directing you to take a left and head toward the Hang Glider ledge. The end of the trail is a popular place to stop and eat lunch or a snack. There are unmarked trails that head east and west at the Hang Glider ledge (end of the trail) but both of those go through private land.
