The Stables is one of the premier coastal soaring sites in the country. Pilots can often fly while watching the sun setting over the Pacific, the Farallon Islands in the distance, and spectacular views of the Golden Gate Bridge. The area is owned by the GGNRA, and we are allowed to fly through a special use agreement. A P3 with site intro and signed waiver is required to fly here. See the site procedures for additional information.

Pilot Waiver
Signing the waiver to use this site is your agreement to know, abide by, and enforce the rules and regulations contained in this document. Failure to do so can result in privilege suspension.
Park Special Use Permit
WOR has obtained a Special Use Permit from the National Park Service for the activity of Paragliding at this site. The GGNRA established rules and boundaries for paragliding activities at The Stables. The permit does not include hang gliding, motorized power, or commercial activities and tandem flying is not currently permitted. Hiking is permitted only on designated trails. Dogs must be on a leash.
Launch and Landing Restrictions
Launching and landing within the GGNRA space are permitted only at designated areas which will be pointed out during your site introduction. We are allowed to top land here or on the beach. It is illegal to launch or land any where else on GGNRA land. Any pilot found launching or landing outside the designated area can be cited by the Park Rangers and will endanger our permit with the GGNRA. Please help keep this site open by educating other pilots who may not be aware of these restrictions.
