San Francisco Hang Gliding Center
San Francisco Hang Gliding Center information
Soar above the Marin Coast from the Bay Area’s highest peak for spectacular views over Bolinas Lagoon and Point Reyes. But first you have to get yourself to Mt Tamalpais . The thrilling 2-mile flight from Mt Tam to Stinson Beach includes instruction, and lasts anywhere from seven to 30 minutes, depending on the winds. Alternatively, try paragliding, which is similar but you float beneath parachute-like material not attached to a fixed wing. Location and times vary; be sure to call ahead for details.
