Slope Soaring Sites in Connecticut near Bristol

A nice multi-direction site that has N, NW, W and E faces about 80 feet high is located on Perkins Street in Bristol, CT.

It is an old gravel mine area that is now a rustic dog walking area owned by the town. Use the nice parking lot they created and feel free to bring a weed whacker to clear off the top of the slope. The slope requires a 1000 foot walk from the parking area.

  1. I took a look at this site today. Its very rough especially the potential landing areas, even on the flat ground many trees. Not to mention the dogs that look to have in-bred retrieval skills with gnashing teeth that aren’t too friendly to foamy, balasa, or pilot flesh. There is a grassy slope facing East that would be cool when the winds are favourable.
