Missouri Slope Flying Sites
Fults Hill (OK so technically it is in Illinois, but it is only 45 minutes from ST Louis!)
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.
For best info, check with Paul Luebke or Ken Trudeau of the Mississippi Valley Soaring Association.
