Tollhouse is located about 40 miles south of Yosemite.
Launch is from a grassy area between some ridge-top trees and slopes lightly down until a rocky cliff face.
Access is 4 WD with clearance. Smaller, low clearance, AWD/4WD may not make it up the dirt roads to Launch.
The LZ is large and slightly sloped grassy area. There are some power lines nearby, but there is enough room for figure 8 approaches without being at all close to the Power lines.
Mid-Day and XC flying during summer months should only be done by experienced pilots. Better yet, the site is great for morning flights and evening glass off during the summer season.
Tollhouse is a regulated P3 site, but P2 pilots can fly with an approved sponsor. All pilots need to be members of USHPA and also need to be current (Annual Renewal) in regards to site fees (info below). P3 and P4 pilots should get a site intro and are required to join the Central Valley Hang gliding and Paragliding Association (CCHPA) – the club that sponsors and insures the site. The Annual Fee for Tollhouse is $80 / Year or you can pay for 1 month at $30 from the day you sign up and pay. Below is a link to the official club page for Tollhouse – sponsored by the Central California Hang Gliding and Paragliding Club.
Payment – Please visit the new club site at CCHPC.club. The club’s site page is: http://www.cchpc.club/tollhouse-site-rules–info.html
