Woodrat Mountain

Launch Sites - Oregon

Woodrat Mountain has world class launch sites for hang and paragliding. The two sites, mid and upper launch, are accessible for passenger vehicles and offer spectacular views and opportunities to launch. The mid launch site overlooks the Bishop Creek Drainage and does not have a restroom. The upper launch has a permanent concrete restroom, wind sock, and sweeping views of much of the Applegate Valley. During the warmer summer months, both launch sites can be quite busy.
