Wonderful panoramic view of the Elmira/Horseheads area. Sit on the swings and look out over the area below. The soaring center is a great place to get a first hand view of the gliders.

Everyone should experience the majesty of an unpowered sailplane ride. The folks at Harris Hill are the best! While there, visit the National Soaring Museum and see their incredible collection!

If you're into the history of this area or flying or soaring, this is a great place to go or take kids. You will learn alot about soaring and the history of the activity and see some neat live soaring take place!
