FROM ROUTE 9N AND 117 Sleepy Hollow

Once you are on Route 9 North From 117, you are VERY close.  Slow down and watch on the left!

Travel North on Route 9 till you see a small road on the left and a stone house. Enter the road and contin
ue across the little bridge.  You will then cross a small road on your right.  Pass the road and pull off to the side about 100 feet to the left of the little gated road entrance.  In the woods you should see a 50 foot path that goes up up to an open field. Walk up the hill about 150 feet and you will see the site.

This is a park, not part of the office building property.

You have to hi-start the planes to fly over the trees at the bottom of the hill.  Once you cross the trees you will be in the lift zone. I have used my upstart ( 25 feet rubber and 125 feet line) to hi-start my Zagi and 2M planes. For anything larger I
might suggest using 50' rubber 150 line.

LANDING AREA

There is a large grassy landing area about 200 wide by 400+ long plus a grassy down hill area, so 2M and even 3M planes can land here safely.

On the map, where you see 87 crossing the river, that is the Tappen Zee bridge. The site is located right about where the route 9 symbol is shown on this map, just above 87.
