How to find us


If you are coming from the East  (from Colorado Springs):

  • Take Highway 24 west-bound from Colorado Springs.
  • Turn left (south) onto County Road 23. This turnoff is located approximately 15.5 miles west of Lake George. The turnoff is very shortly after the sign (on the left side of the road) for the Chaparral Store.
  • Go about 2.8 miles south on Highway 23 until you reach the "T" in the road
  • Turn right onto County Road 59.
  • Go approximately 5.5 miles west, past Chaparral store and the ranch house, until you reach the gate on your right (North side of the road).

If you are coming from the West  (from Fairplay/Hartsel via Highway 285):

  • After passing through Hartsel (don't blink!), immediately turn right/south onto Highway 9
  • Immediately turn left/east onto County Road 59.
  • Drive approximately 5.3 miles east. The gate will be on your left (North side of the road).

Important: Please do not approach the launch site from Elkhorn Road (CR 15) off of Highway 24. This is a private road and the gate will likely be locked. Instead, please take CR 59 from Hartsel to the West or CR 23 to CR 59 to the East.

Hi all, 
We are go for launch on Sunday the 30th. Ill be on site at 7 AM. If we are set up we can have a quick safety meeting, and begin launching at 8 AM.  Please let me know if you are planning 7,000 ft AGL or higher (up to 14,200 ft AGL), first thing in the morning, so we can get a window. 
As always observers and guests are welcome. You must be a NAR or Tripoli national member to launch High Power. Flight cards will be required prior to every flight. Please note that we have a new form to sign which protects the landowner. All flyers and guests will need to sign it. Camping is never allowed on site. Sites can be found at Antero, 11 mile, and Chapparal campground. 
Hope so see you all there!
