Hang Gliding / Paragliding

Favorable wind patterns make Draper's Point of the Mountain one of the best gliding locations in the world, and people have been gliding from this spot since the 1920s. Now, due to the efforts of Draper City officials and Salt Lake County along with the Utah hang gliding and paragliding community, gliders have a nice park with restrooms, grass, picnic tables and a parking lot.

There are a lot of outfitters in the Draper and Salt Lake area offering hang gliding and paragliding lessons and tandem flights. The best place to start looking is the website of the Utah Hang Gliding and Paragliding Association.
