Cross-country flights to Hope on both types of wings. An easy and pleasant XC Flight is to Harrison Hot Springs: a good place to soak your bones after a day of flying. CYA 132 (H) to 6000' (1800 m) ASL (Maximum). Watch for small aircraft over Riverside LZ. One of the WCSC's most high profile and valued sites. Can get crowded in spring and early summer. Only land in the designated landing fields. Do NOT land in any other fields. Long glide to HG landing field in any headwind. The WCSC has an XC meet running two to three weekends here every year starting Mid- April. Great way to start the year. The site has very nice coastal influenced air combined with pleasant thermals which are generally well away from the hill. The scenery is outstanding.

In poor conditions there is a good HG ramp lower down the slope. Leave for the LZ when no more than 50' below the old lower launch. Use small field ( The 'Riverside LZ' is located 10 minutes hiking time south of the Lougheed Highway junction with the FSR. There is a trail out of the field through a neighbors property starting near the NW corner of the field leading to the Cafe. If you open a gate close it behind you. na. na. na.
