Illinois Slope Flying Sites – Fults Hill
This is a public park in rural Illinois about 45 minutes from downtown St. Louis, MO. Head South on Rt 3 to Waterloo, right on 156, make hairpin turn at abandoned gas station onto Bluff Rd., past village of Fults, look for sign on right that says Fults Hill. Hike up the left-hand trail (not the wooden stairs). Et voila.
It’s a pretty spot. A few pix are at:
The flying is best with southwest winds, which luckily are the prevailing winds at the site.
