Launch is accessible by 2WD. It is just to the north of Geary's Gap where the highway heads down to the lake.


Anywhere on the lake.


Generally most pilots turn left immediatly after launch. It is not too high and it is pretty easy to bomb out.

Hazards / Comments

Powerlines to the right of launch, and then again near the first rest stop about 3 km to the north of launch.

Airspace starts at 3500ft/1060m ASL so there is not much room over launch to get high. Make sure you check the current Visual Terminal chart before flying. Once you push north past the first rest stop airspace goes up to 5500ft (1670m) ASL. If you push south over the highway towards Bungendore then airspace goes up to 4500ft (1370m) ASL.
