Description

Jackson Butte Mountain in Northern California offers a launch height of 689 meters with a height difference of approximately 340 meters. This site is rarely used, and the last recorded flight was in 2011. It is known for thermal soaring, and cross-country flights are possible under the right conditions. The site record stands at 12.2 km. Landing options are limited and can be tricky. For a successful launch, winds need to be coming from the southwest to west to northwest; otherwise, the launch area is in rotor, making it unsafe.
